Pulling Together to Stop Invasive Weeds

Invasive weeds are growing throughout the watershed, maybe even in your own backyard! Please help us to stop their spread by learning to identify the plants, reporting their location, and removing them!

Invasive weed season is now! We've been busy this spring and summer throughout the watershed controlling and surveying our target species. During June, we traveled to San Juan Bay, Montague Island and floated the Copper River to control invasive dandelions in these remote and unspoiled areas.
 
Dandelions - Heney Creek easement
 
In Cordova, we're managing high priority reed canarygrass, orange hawkweed and bohemian knotweed, and in the Copper Basin white sweetclover and bird vetch are showing up in all the usual places like roadsides and gravel pits. Please help us limit the spread of these plants and their seeds by brushing off your clothing, shoes and pets after a hike, and cleaning off vehicles, ATVs, boats, and float planes when traveling through infested areas.

Please meet at the ROAR Recycling Center, Mile 188.6 Glenn Highway, across from Crowley Petroleum. Free lunch and prizes for all volunteers! At the 2014 event our volunteers pulled over one ton of white sweetclover - help us to meet or beat that amount this year!
