2019 Cost Share sign-ups taking place Nov 26-Jan 31
Franklin County Noxious Weed Control Board is announcing a Cost Share Program to help landowners who have low value rangeland and out ground infested with noxious weeds. Sign-up begins Nov. 26, 2018 and ends Jan. 31, 2019 for spring or fall 2019 herbicide applications. To learn more about the program, call the weed board office at 545-3847. You can also drop by the office at 502 Boeing Street in Pasco although calling ahead to set an appointment for a consultation is recommended especially during the holiday season. More information is also available on our website’s Cost Share Program page.
What are noxious weeds?
Noxious weeds are non-native plants introduced to Washington State through human actions. Because of their aggressive growth and lack of natural enemies in the state, these species can be highly destructive, competitive or difficult to control. These exotic species can reduce crop yields, destroy native plant and animal habitat, reduce recreational opportunities, clog waterways, lower land values and poison humans and livestock.
Sounds scary, right? All is not lost. We are here to help!
We can help you with identification and help you develop a plan to get rid of those nasty noxious weeds. Feel free to contact us with questions or concerns. We look forward to working with you.
