Help protect Washington's wild areas while hiking this summer! The Wilderness Weed Watchers Program trains volunteers to identify, map and control invasive species along backcountry trails and campsites. Volunteers gain skills in plant identification, enjoy scenic hikes in the wilderness, and contribute important data to the U.S. Forest Service.

The training will orient volunteers to the goals of the Wilderness Weed Watchers Program, introduce invasive species of concern (and native look-alikes!) and train volunteers in basic survey procedures. Volunteers will be asked to commit to conducting two trail surveys during the summer of 2013 in one of seven wilderness areas in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.

Wilderness Weed Watchers is a partnership between The Mountaineers, King County Noxious Weed Program, Snohomish County Department of Public Works and the U.S. Forest Service.

Training will occur 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Glacier Public Service Station, 10091 Mt. Baker Hwy, Glacier, WA. Trained volunteers will survey the Mt. Baker Wilderness for the presence of invasive species.
