About The Event

Hosted by: Joseph Shea, Skagit County Noxious Weed Coordinator, and Laurel Baldwin, Whatcom County Weed Control Coordinator

This is a free 2.5 to 3 hour training 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, and learn methods of manual removal and which species you should not attempt to remove. 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.

As of now, we are uncertain if we will host a live training event or webinar but we will update you with any information as it is solidified. 

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 you choose to attend via webinar, you will receive a zoom link via email as we approach the date.
