Staff educate property owners on identification, impacts and control methods for state-listed noxious weeds. It is also our job to locate noxious weed infestations that are not being effectively controlled. To achieve this, the program conducts annual surveys and follow-up checks on existing noxious weed locations. Staff will meet with the owner or property manager to review the weed locations and discuss site-specific noxious weed control plans, if requested.
Program staff provides the landowner with information on how to identify and control noxious weeds on their property. We also provide noxious weed education and attend many local events such as Farm Fair, the Benton Franklin County Fair, and the Home and Garden Show at TRAC.
