Hood National Forest.

Anyone working or recreating in the Mt. Hood National Forest will want to attend. This free training will teach you to identify priority weeds for the Mt Hood National Forest and teach you how to report your findings. At the trainings, we will have many plant specimens on hand to help you familiarize yourself with some of our most damaging new invaders.
This training will be presented by Andrew Frasier of the Pacific Northwest Invasive Plants Council. This training will cover some of the most important invasive weeds threatening the Mt Hood National Forest. This will be the only training of its kind offered in Oregon this year, and will build upon this growing network of community scientists across multiple states in the Pacific Northwest. So don’t miss your opportunity to join!
We will also be offering recertification credits for public and private pesticide applicators in attendance from both Oregon and Washington state.
