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. The goal of our group hikes is to get people confident with surveying trails so they can do surveys independently. All skill levels and backgrounds are welcomed.
