Thurston County Noxious Weed Agency Coordinator Honored Nationally

An upriver soldier in the state’s battle against invasive species has been recognized nationally for keeping an aquarium plant from taking over the Chehalis River system.
Rick Johnson, Coordinator of the Thurston County Noxious Weed Agency in Washington State, is recognized by the US Department of the Interior for his 34-year record of commitment to invasive plant management, and has served on multiple weed management committees, boards and associations. Rick led a program for the management of Brazilian Elodea in the Chehalis River system, an initiative which spanned multiple agencies over the course of ten years.
