Noxious Weeds

Weeds have no boundaries.  Jackson County has a climate well suited to weed species and, unfortunately, new invasive weed species are constantly threatening local native plants.  To reduce the negative impact weeds can have on recreation, agriculture, forestry and property values, we need to know what we’re up against and how to fight back.
