Noxious Weed Control Board
Purpose of the Noxious Weed Control Board
Spokane County's Noxious Weed Control Program focuses on education, notification, technical assistance and control of noxious weeds through voluntary compliance and enforcement.
Term: 4 years
During the months of April through August, when the weeds are actively growing, the Weed Board employs a field staff with natural resource, horticulture and agricultural backgrounds to survey public and privately owned lands for noxious weeds and to work with landowners to achieve weed control.
Approximately 25% of the inspections come from citizens who report noxious weed locations to our office, the remainder are inspections made by the field staff as they travel the county.
