“Pre-emergent Weed Control” is the May Wildlife Study Series topic at the Werner Wildlife Museum Thursday, May 19, at 7 p.m.

The talk, presented by Matt Jolivet, will examine how to get a jump on those unwanted plants that arrive in your lawn, flower beds, and vegetable gardens every year. Jolivet has worked for Natrona County Weed and Pest for six years, with prior service at Goshen County Weed and Pest. “I was drawn to invasive species management through the agroecology program at the University of Wyoming,” said Jolivet.

“I grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where many folks didn’t have a good idea of knowing where their food comes from and studying agroecology answered most of those questions. I enjoy problem-solving and taking an economic approach to land management and enjoy the task of eliminating noxious weeds from the Wyoming landscape,” Jolivet said.

The Wildlife Study Series programs are family-friendly, free, and open to the public. Programs take place on the third Thursday of each month. For more information, call 307-235-2108 or email

The Werner Wildlife Museum, located off the Casper College campus at 405 E. 15th Street, is free and open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
