Smith Island/Union Slough Noxious Weed Management

Smith Island/Union Slough Noxious Weed Management

February 1, 2018

Peninsula Environmental Group planned and executed the removal of Class A noxious weeds Purple Loosetrife, Yellow Iris and Knotweed. The project was part of the Smith Island/Union Slough Restoration Project. The site, a restored estuary, was surveyed and weeds were manually removed to reduce the invasive spread and encourage native growth. Working with the tides we removed weeds on the mudflats and transported them off site via canoe as waters rose, after which they were disposed of in accordance with Snohomish County Noxious Weed Board.


The scenery on this project was beautiful!
