Weminuche Wilderness Invasive Plant Monitoring

Weeds follow disturbance, such as wildfire. With cows grazing and humans, horses, and dogs travelling in the recently burned Hermosa Creek drainage, land managers and scientists expect to see an influx of invasive weeds.

Help us map invasive plants in the 416 burn area by submitting photo observations to iNaturalist.org.

  1. TURN ON LOCATION SERVICES (so the GPS coords come with the picture)

  2. Take pictures of invasive plants

  3. Upload photos directly from your smart-phone to iNaturalist.org

Tell us which trail you hike and when.

The Forest Service would like to know about the presence of invasive plants on these trails. If you hike one of these trails or plan to hike one of these trails and report your invasive plant sightings, please fill out this form so that we can track which trails still need inspection. You do not need to tell us what you found. That goes to the Forest Service via iNaturalist.org and your data sheet.
