We will meet at the Mt Si trailhead at 9:00 am.

Directions: From Seattle, drive I-90 to exit 32. Turn left onto 436th Ave SE. Follow 436th to its end at SE North Bend Way. Turn left. In three-tenths of a mile, turn right onto SE Mt. Si Road. Follow it 2.4 miles. Entrance to the trailhead will be on the left (http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/mount-si ). You will need a WA State Discover Pass to park (contact us if you need one).

King County Noxious Weeds is leading this hike to search for high priority noxious weeds and also to pull invasive plants out of the Mt Si Natural Area. It is great for anyone who has no experience with invasive plants or for anyone who wants to improve the ecological health of Mt Si. We are likely not to finish the hike but will be doing work along the way.

Required Equipment

Required Equipment

Work gloves are recommended.

Don’t forget: Dress for the weather, whatever that will be. Don’t forget sunblock. Bring your allergy medications and tell us about any allergies or medical conditions you have. Wear sturdy hiking shoes. Bring plenty of water for the day, a lunch and plenty of snacks to keep you going. Survey forms, your smartphone and weed identification guides will be good if you want to follow along and practice. A trowel or small digging tool and work gloves will be helpful in case we find things we can remove then and there if you have your own. Binoculars are good to have if you like.
