The Invasive Weed Outreach Project demonstrates the harm caused by invasive weeds and teach Salem gardeners, homeowners, and property owners how to identify and eradicate those weeds. It focuses on weeds that are widespread threats to urban watersheds, and those that are readily recognizable. The Invasive Weed Outreach Project has:
• Published an informative visual guide to help people identify and manage weeds effectively
• Produced bookmarks that show and describe the weeds and ways to control them
• Placed signs in two Salem parks that show and describe the effects of invasive weeds
• Will give 1/2-hour presentations about identifying and managing weeds to local area groups

The Invasive Weed Outreach Project is a joint project of the Pringle Creek Watershed Council and the Marion County Soil and Water Conservation District. It was financed by a grant from the City of Salem’s Watershed Protection and Preservation Grant Program.

This introductory guide is intended for novices who want basic information on natural landscaping, streambank stabilization, and landscaping for wildlife habitat using native plants.

This brochure provides a step by step, easy to use guide to planting Willamette Valley natives along your streambank. Species which are not native, are not found frequently, or are not easily propagated are not covered in this guide. For more detailed information on native plant propagation and identification, please refer to the references at the end of the brochure.

This is an online edition of the Washington State Dept. of Ecology manual. It is tailored for freshwater plants found in Washington State's lakes, rivers and streams.

Salem's trees have always been very important to its residents. There are more than 95,000 trees planted along our city streets and avenues. And those are just the ones that the City of Salem is responsible for! There are thousands of other trees planted on private lands throughout the city. To find out more information about our local trees and efforts to protect them, visit this and its related web pages.

In the summer of 2001, the City of Salem took part in two studies to measure how much tree "cover" there is in both Salem and the Willamette Valley. Both studies used satellite imagery that can detect the presence of trees. However, the studies are quite different. For example, the regional study of the Willamette Valley (and Lower Columbia River) measure the changes of tree canopy over a 30 year period. The Salem study conveys detailed information on today's canopy cover (within the city limits) and estimates the benefits that the trees provide.

The Watershed Assessment provides current and historic information on the physical, biological and cultural landscape in the four Salem-Keizer urban watersheds.
