Noxious Weed Advisory Board
The goal of the Garfield County Weed Advisory Board is to curb the degradation of our valued environments by implementing an integrated weed management plan to stop the spread of noxious weeds.
Management of weeds may seem overwhelming, but through developing partnerships at all levels – local, regional, and national – we hope that the likelihood of reaching our weed management goals will be high. The challenge for all involved is to develop management systems, support and direction for preventing the spread of weeds before the situation becomes even more serious and economically unfeasible.
Our duty is to advise the Board of County Commissioners on noxious weed issues that pertain to Garfield County, as well as advise the BOCC on the following points:
Development & maintenance of the county noxious weed list;
Development & maintenance of the weed management plan for managing designated noxious weeds;
Recommend that identified landowners be required to submit an integrated weed management plan for managing designated noxious weeds on their properties.
