Yellow Flag Iris and Purple Loosestrife Control
County assistance (August 2021)
"During the summer, the field inspection program is focusing efforts on the highest priority species of noxious weeds: Class A, B and C species that are required for control.
We have a new Report a Noxious Weed form available online. Please provide a location and a in-focus, close-up pictures of the flowers and leaves. Also please show scale in at least one picture with a standard-sized object such as a coin. We will prioritize responding to reports that have pictures to go with them.
Due to current staffing shortages, Clark County will be unable to perform weed free forage inspections for the foreseeable future. Please refer to the WSDA website for more information about using state inspectors.
Clark County Vegetation Management is responsible, by state law, for controlling noxious weeds in Clark County. It is made up of five members of the Clark County Weed Board, appointed by the Board of County Councilors.
