Suggestions for Changes to 2017 SCNWCB Weed List

We are soliciting suggestions for changes to our county weed list beginning immediately.  We will accept your written suggestions for changes to next year's list until July 31, 2016.  This will allow staff and Board Members time to review suggestions, do some research and discuss the feasibility of any proposed changes.

Changes can include elevating control requirements of a State listed Class C or Class B noxious weed in all or part of the county or reducing control requirements of a county select noxious weed in all or part of the county.  For instance; Poison hemlock is a State listed Class B noxious weed, not designated for control in Stevens County.  If you feel strongly that this weed should be required to be controlled by all landowners here, you can make that suggestion, providing supporting details such as where you have seen it, how much, anything you know about control measures and why you believe we should elevate it to a county select weed. 

Alternately, if you feel that the county select weed, for instance Black henbane (a State listed Class C weed, but elevated to required control everywhere in Stevens County) should NOT be a county select weed, you can make that suggestion and give supporting reasoning as to why. 

We can not add a weed/plant to our county weed list that is not already on the State Noxious Weed List nor can we lessen control requirements that have been set at the state level.  If you have a plant of concern to you that you feel should be listed on the State Noxious Weed List or one that you feel should be removed from the State list, you may make those suggestions directly to the State Weed Board.  Read this information for more about how you can participate in that process.

Contact us via email or letter if you have suggestions for changes to the county weed list.  weedboard@co.stevens.wa.us

Broken Links

If you've attempted to "click on a link" and gotten an error message or simply no photo, I'm very sorry and I wish it weren't so!  The old program we used to create this site is no longer compatible with the newer versions of Microsoft Office.  This means that when I do try to fix broken links, usually relating to images, more often than not, I end up creating more errors than fixes!  So, I'm no longer even trying to insert new images or move images or fix broken links.  I am trying to learn a new program to develop a new website from scratch.  Please be patient and understand that this is going to take a while.  In the mean time, I think there is still a lot of great information and photos on this site that you can access without difficulty.  Thanks for visiting our site!
