Lake weed watcher training

Lake weed watcher training

Want to learn how to identify water plants? Interested in saving a lake from the horrors of dense weed infestations? Join us!

2023 Lake Weed Watcher Training - Monday June 26th from 6-8 pm PDT

The Lake Weed Watcher Program trains volunteers to survey for aquatic weeds in small lakes in King County, Washington. Volunteers are trained to identify both native and non-native aquatic plants. The goal of the project is to watch for populations of invasive weeds that are not currently known to occur in King County or that have a very limited distribution, but have the potential to spread and cause damage. Detecting these weeds early allows us to stop them before they get too entrenched to remove.

 We're excited to have you back in-person! Please bring a mask as a portion of the training will be held indoors.

We will meet at the Beaver Lake Lodge in Sammamish.

Please register online so that we know how many folks to expect, thank you and we look forward to seeing you there!
