Upper Snoqualmie Weed Watchers

Upper Snoqualmie Weed Watchers

Project description

Mid Fork Snoqualmie Valley - contact Mark Boyer for permission to use photo

Plant enthusiasts, hikers and others who want to help protect our natural areas are encouraged to join the effort to locate (and control) invasive species in the beautiful Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley and the Snoqualmie Pass Gateway trails of the South Fork Snoqualmie. The Upper Snoqualmie invasive weed project trains volunteers to survey along the beautiful trails of the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley and in the upper South Fork Snoqualmie watershed. Help survey the area's spectacular trail system for invasive weeds so we can stop them before they get entrenched. We are surveying trails from Mt. Si near North Bend to Dutch Miller Gap in the heart of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness.
