Weeds of Camano Island: Noxious Weed Control and Improving Habitat
Noxious weeds decrease forage, increase erosion, destroy biological diversity, and decrease land values across Island County. Join Seth Luginbill, Island County Noxious Weed Program Coordinator, as we explore a host of Camano Island's most prevalent invaders, tools and techniques for specific invasive species, and examine management principles in which landowners may go about controlling invasive plant species and improving native habitats.
Why is this important for those with livestock? Noxious weeds affect us all, and some are toxic to your animals. Bring your weeds (in bags) or pictures to the program for identification and resources on how to control them - Wednesday June 20, 7:00 pm at the Island County Multipurpose Center (blue building next to CASA animal shelter, 141 N East Camano Drive).
Hosted by the Camano Wildlife Habitat Project, sponsored by Friends of Camano Island Parks. District Farm Planners Bobbi Lindemulder and/or Michael Hipp will be there, too, just for you.
