Issaquah Environmental Council teams will clear invasive Scotch broom in the Issaquah Highlands on Sunday, and the group needs volunteers.

Teams will gather near Central Park from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. to clear the non-native plant near the reservoir near Northeast Park Drive.

The group will need volunteers to tackle other invasive plants, such as Himalayan blackberry and ivy, in the weeks ahead. E-mail Connie Marsh, Issaquah Environmental Council president, at auntgrumpy@comcast.net for more information.

Besides invasive plant removal, the Issaquah Environmental Council works to protect the Lower Issaquah Valley Aquifer — a source of city drinking water — the Issaquah Creek watershed and other ecological assets. Learn more about the group here.
