The volunteer's main duty is to traverse Forest Service backcountry to find, document, and plot noxious weeds with GPS units. Those interested will attend a training course in noxious weed identification, navigation, and use of GPS. Data will be used by local land management agencies and conservation groups to assess inventory and treatment of needs. The data (GPS files) will also be shared with the Blaine County Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA). The CWMA website will show an aerial map of the GPS points with recognition of the observer.
Special requirements include ability to traverse varying levels of terrain and sometimes work in inclement weather for the number of hours desired.
