Jefferson 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 or call (360) 379-5610 ext. 205.
