Bring your family and friends, pick a site and participate in one of Nevada County‘s most fun and satisfying challenges.

The Scotch Broom Challenge was created in 2007 to address the spread of this highly flammable and invasive plant in our community. The Scotch Broom Challenge started with just a few sites in Nevada County. In the spring of 2013 over 300 volunteers took the Scotch Broom Challenge and pulled broom at 24 sites throughout Nevada County and Placer County.

Local groups and agencies are once again teaming up and taking the Scotch Broom Challenge. We hope to educate and get people motivated in the region to combat this highly flammable invasive weed. Scotch Broom Challenge pulls are generally from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. No experience is needed. Equipment and supplies are provided. All ages and abilities welcome. Sign up online at Scotch Broom Challenge Sign Up or call the Fire Safe Council at 530-272-1122
