Noxious Weeds

The goals of the program are to:
  • prevent the introduction of new invasive plant species
  • eradicate species with isolated or limited populations
  • contain and manage those invasive species that are well established and widespread

To accomplish these goals the program:
  • implements preventative strategies to reduce the opportunity for new invasive species
  • provides information and resources to local weed managers
  • helps establish local weed management areas emphasizing coordinated efforts among public and private landowners
  • educates public agency staff and private citizens about the negative impacts associated with noxious weeds
