Noxious WeedsNoxious weeds threaten Washington's irreplaceable resources. These non-native, invasive species threaten our agricultural base, rangelands, waterways, parks, wildlife, property values, public health and safety, and general ecological health and diversity of our native ecosystems. While the economic impacts of noxious weeds on agriculture are enormous, their effects on the natural resources and ecological diversity of the state compound those losses. Noxious weed infestations are the second leading cause of wildlife habitat loss. These resources, once destroyed, are irreplaceable.
Members of the Kitsap County Noxious Weed Control Board assist with the development of rules and regulations to direct an effective county weed control or eradication program of noxious weeds. Members assure compliance and coordination with state, federal and other applicable regulations.
