Weed Watchers finish up the season!

It was another successful season! Wilderness Weed Watcher volunteers plodded along trails throughout the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest’s wilderness areas this past summer in search of invasive weeds. Many invasive plants were documented along nearly a dozen trails and 50 miles of our protected lands. The discovery of these plants reemphasizes the importance of this work – we’re doing our best as responsible recreationalists to protect the places we love so much.

THANK YOU to all our volunteers. The information you collected is being given to our partners at Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie Forest who will use the data to plan next year’s forest management. Your hard work is making a difference, and will help ensure our wilderness areas are as beautiful and protected as possible for years to come. 

Thank you to our program volunteers as well! And special thanks to the National Forests Foundation, whose grant made this program possible. And to our partners at Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and King County.
