Wilderness Weed Watchers Training
Sarah E. Krueger
North Bend Ranger Station
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 and the U.S. Forest Service.

We will also be holding two post-training 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.
