Weed Watchers at work

 

Description:

Weed Watchers patrol the roads and trails of the national parks in San Mateo, San Francisco, and Marin counties, detecting weeds as they first invade. Discovering weeds before they become well-established is critical to reducing damage to ecosystem integrity, preventing the loss of habitat for rare plants and animals, and preventing costly natural resource management.
