Washington Conservation Corps crew member and plant enthusiast Colleen Braun hates noxious weeds. It makes her mad to see them invading into natural areas and taking over native plant habitat. So when Colleen and fellow WCC’er and photographer Cynthia Saleh ran into endless noxious weeds in a Swamp Creek wetland in North King County one hot summer day on the job, they put together this photo album to help educate the rest of us about what’s lurking out there in the swamp. Follow along as Colleen is horrified by one scary invasive plant after another!
