When we ran the Alpine Lakes Weed Watchers program, we do so in partnership with this King County program, so we are thrilled to partner with King County Weed Watchers for these trips. Their staff run this activity and you will be in good hands – they have been running their Weed Watchers program for years and are very knowledgeable.

Check out the King County website for more info on their Weed Watchers program in general.
