Since 1999, the Board of County Commissioners has set aside funds for the Garfield County Noxious Weed Cost Share Program. The program is a partnership between Garfield County Vegetation Management and the local conservation districts.

In a typical year, the program generates participation from about 100 landowners, and the amount of land treated is generally between 2,500 to 4,000 acres. See application for details.
