Invasive Weed Species

The Deschutes Soil and Water Conservation District is a Proud Sponsor of the "Play, Clean and Go" Campaign

Invasive weeds are all around us, but knowing what they look like and how to prevent them can help reduce their impact on our community. They are species that are capable of causing severe damage in areas outside their normal range, harming the economy, the environment, or human health once they become established.

Whether you're riding, hiking, running or horse back riding, there are ways you can prevent the spread of invasive species. To learn more on how you can keep Deschutes County weed free, click on the images and videos below.
