Vegetation Management will be at these 2018 events:
Bull thistle, May 2018 weed of the month
Bull thistle is a Class C noxious weed. It is able to outcompete native plants and desirable pasture forage for wildlife and livestock.
Bull thistle is fairly common in Clark County and can invade most any disturbed area, including recently logged areas, and grows in dense thickets.
Property owners are required to control the noxious weed when it grows adjacent to cropland.
For information on control options or help with identification, contact the Clark County Noxious Weed Control Board or Vegetation Management by email, email@example.com, or by phone, 360.397.6140.
Help keep out invasive weeds
Clean hiking boots, waders, boats and trailers, off-road vehicles and other gear to stop invasive species from hitching a ride to a new location. Learn more at PlayCleanGo.org.
Avoid dumping aquariums or live bait into waterways. Learn more at Habitattitude.org.
Don't move firewood. Instead, buy it where you'll burn it or gather it on-site when permitted. Learn more at DontMoveFirewood.org.
Plant only non-invasive vegetation in your garden and remove any known invaders.
Report new or expanded invasive species outbreaks to authorities. Here is a state-by-state list of contacts.
