2013 Weed Watcher Training
Our 2013 training class and orientation for trail weed watchers will be held on June 23 in the conference hall of the North Bend Ranger Station from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. To sign up, or for more information, please contact Sasha Shaw. You can also register online through the Weed Watcher Online Reporting Site (after creating a user ID).
We will also be holding two group survey hikes for additional plant ID and survey practice (and fun!) on June 28 and June 30. We will pick the trails closer to the date to make sure they are snow free and ready to survey, but we tentatively plan to meet at the North Bend Ranger Station at 9:00 am to carpool to the trailhead.
The 2013 training program will be a combined training for the Upper Snoqualmie Weed Watchers coordinated by our program and the Wilderness Weed Watchers coordinated by The Mountaineers. For more information on the Mountaineers' Wilderness Weed Watchers, please contact Sarah Krueger or visit the Mountaineers website.
Plant enthusiasts, hikers and others who want to help protect our natural areas are encouraged to join the effort to locate (and control) invasive species in the beautiful Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley and the Snoqualmie Pass Gateway trails of the South Fork Snoqualmie.
The Middle Fork-South Fork invasive weed project trains volunteers to survey along the beautiful trails of the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley and in the upper South Fork Snoqualmie watershed. Help survey the area's spectacular trail system for invasive weeds so we can stop them before they get entrenched. We’re surveying trails from Mt. Si near North Bend to Dutch Miller Gap in the heart of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Read the project reports below to see what we've found so far. To sign up to survey a trail or for more information, email Mark Boyar or Sasha Shaw. To find out about weed removal work parties in the Middle Fork, see the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust website.
