County Noxious Weed Control Board is looking for volunteers!
Noxious weeds are a major ecological threat and have a severe
detrimental effect on the economy. Controlling these weeds greatly supports
your local natural areas (forests, meadows, or watersheds), the
accompanying wildlife (salmon, deer, or bees), and the local economy
(farmers, orchards, or forestry).
The Jefferson County Noxious Weed Control Board has an
increased budget and staff this year and aims to play a much more impactful
role in noxious weed management from here on out. One of our main goals is
to set up a large volunteer base which we could call upon whenever high priority
infestations cannot be controlled otherwise.
If you are interested in signing up to be on our volunteer
list and receive notifications for weed control events please contact the
Weed Board Coordinator Joost Besijn by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or
call (360) 379-5610 ext. 205.
