Invaders in Our Foothills: Help Stop the Weeds!


What do scentless mayweed, yellow star thistle, and jointed goatgrass all have in common?  All are noxious weeds we don’t want to find in our Wenatchee Foothills!  Chelan-Douglas Land Trust (CDLT) has teamed up with Chelan County Weed Board to offer a noxious weed identification training for the community. This hands-on workshop will be held at the Saddle Rock Trailhead covered shelter, from 5:30-7:30 PM.

Weed Board Field Supervisor and Botanist Julie Sanderson will teach field identification tips for a list of 16 “most wanted” invasive species. Participants will be provided with pocket guides and will use hand lenses and fresh samples.  Learning will be fun and interactive.  

Free and open to the public.  Free parking and restrooms are available at the Saddle Rock Trailhead at 1130 Circle Street in Wenatchee.  We won’t cancel due to rain thanks to the covered shelter.  Mark your calendar and plan to attend to learn how to identify the 16 most worrisome noxious weeds that threaten our native plant communities. Contact CDLT with questions (667-9708). Please RSVP with the form below.
