Snohomish Invasive Plant Identification Training
Time & Location
About The Event
Hosted by: Jonathane Schmitt, Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest
This is a free 2.5 hour training where you will learn how to identify priority invasive species, how to record basic data and how to report findings on EDDMapSWest, a national early detection reporting system. Participants learn plant identification through a PowerPoint presentation and live material. Participants also learn methods of manual removal and which species you should not attempt to remove. Trainings will equip volunteers with the knowledge necessary to conduct invasive plant surveys in order to support local land managers that need your help. Information will be shared about what sections in this area will need more survey attention, and what the target species are. Your efforts will directly support the maintenance of healthy ecosystems. Volunteers 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 when restrictions have been lifted.
