Lake Weed Watcher Training

2020 webinar was on June 22 - watch it online on our YouTube playlist.

Got a small boat? Interested in saving a lake from the horrors of dense weed infestations? Want to learn how to identify water plants?  Join us!

The Lake Weed Watcher Program trains volunteers to survey for aquatic weeds in small lakes in King County, Washington. Volunteers are trained to identify both native and non-native aquatic plants. The goal of the project is to watch for populations of invasive weeds that are not currently known to occur in King County or that have a very limited distribution, but have the potential to spread and cause damage. Detecting these weeds early allows us to stop them before they get too entrenched to remove.

For more information, contact Ben Peterson. WSDA Pesticide Recertification credits will be available (2 credits pending).
