Our Control Projects
When it comes to weed control, we recognize that you need help. While we do not have the resources to control all of the invasive weeds on everyone's property, we can lend a hand with certain weeds. With our weed control projects we try and take a preventative approach, focusing on the invasive plants that are just beginning to get established but are not everywhere yet. For us to begin a control project, the weed must be a threat to streams or natural areas. In some cases we will draw a "line in the sand" and attempt to stop the spread of a particular weed beyond this line. If the weed is spread by water, we focus our control efforts on the areas near streams. We are fortunate to be able to partner with other organizations and with private property owners on weed control. We couldn't do it without this combined effort.
