Invasive Weed Removal
March 10 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
SWS help is needed to remove invasive weeds in partnership with the Friends of Whidbey State Parks
Work Party at Fort Casey State Park
Rain or Shine, we start at 9 am. Sign in, safety check and choose your work area. Go team!
At Fort Casey – park in the main parking lot. Bring muck, rain, or farmer boots if you have them. This is important because at the end we will wash all our boots to make sure we don’t carry tiny weed seeds home or to other properties.
Removal of Poison Hemlock and Cudweed:
Poison Hemlock ~ all parts are poisonous to people and animals. Dried, dead canes are toxic up to 3 years. Young plants are easily dug up. Wear gloves to avoid contact dermatitis.
Cudweed ~ is spreading in the native plant area. The seeds are tiny, so if you’d like to help remove this plant, please bring muck, rain or farmer boots, that can be rinsed, so seeds are not spread to other areas in the park.
Friends of Whidbey State Parks & State Park will have tools and extra gloves available onsite.
Discover Pass needed ~ or let us know you need a volunteer day pass. For more information, email: FriendsofWhidbeyStateParks@gmail.com Hope you can join us!
Cookies for all volunteers! Bring gloves, water bottle, & mask.
SWS: Record your hours as Stewardship for WA State Parks-Central/South Whidbey. Please let the Stewardship Committee via Sandy Hunt know if you go.
