June 13, 2012
Plant enthusiasts, hikers and others who want to help natural areas are encouraged to join the effort to locate and control invasive plant species in the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley and the Snoqualmie Pass Gateway trails.

Where: North Bend Ranger Station, Back Conference Hall,
902 S.E. North Bend Way
