About The Event

Hosted by: Madelyn, Skagit County Noxious Weed Coordinator

This is a free 3 hour training including a one hour nature walk, where you will learn how to identify priority invasive species, how to record basic data and how to report findings on EDDMapS, a national early detection reporting system.

Participants learn plant identification through in-person training with a potential online option, and learn methods of manual removal and which species you should not attempt to remove. After the lecture portion of the training, we will be going to Padilla Bay Shore Trail to put your new skills of identification and reporting to the test. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and potentially see some wildlife!

This training will equip you with the knowledge necessary to conduct invasive plant surveys in order to support local land managers that need your help. Your efforts will directly support the maintenance of healthy ecosystems.

Upon request, you will receive an invasive plant identification booklet along with survey forms. We ask that volunteers who sign up conduct 1-2 surveys over the field season.

If we are able to host an online option, you will receive a zoom link for the webinar via email as we approach the date.
