Title:  Noxious Weeds in Thornton Creek: A Survey of Knotweed in South Fork Parks and a Strategic Plan for Basin-Wide Eradication

Description:  Knotweeds are noxious weeds that are commonly problematic in riparian systems in temperate regions of the world, including Washington State. These invaders are present in Thornton Creek, in northeast Seattle and the city of Shoreline, and have caught the attention of numerous agencies and organizations in the region. This project began as a survey of invasive knotweed in the parks along the South Branch of Thornton Creek, and expanded to include a strategic plan for noxious weed eradication along the entire creek.
