Stewardship In Action

SIA Logo FullProtecting watersheds one neighbor at a time.

 Knotweed is an aggressive invasive plant that damages property and destabilizes the riverbank.  Friends of the Cedar River Watershed is working in partnership with Seattle Public Utilities, Forterra, and King County Noxious Weed Control program to provide free knotweed control services to landowners who live along the mainstem or major tributaries of the Cedar River through Renton and Maple Valley.  Many sites are also eligible for native planting design and installation to ensure a stable riverbank and meet the needs of the property owner.

Stewardship In Action offers workshops each spring, summer, and fall to help landowners achieve success with invasive plant control and management of native plantings.  We are also available to provide  on-the-ground support for those who prefer to treat knotweed on their own.  Working neighbor to neighbor, we can rid the lower Cedar River basin of invasive plants and restore a healthy ecosystem while maintaining individual property values.
