King County’s 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 and contribute important data to the U.S. Forest Service and Washington State DNR. During the 2017 field season (generally late June-early October), volunteers will focus survey efforts on trails in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest that lead into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, trails in the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley, and trails around Mount Si and the South Fork Snoqualmie area.
