Invasive Weed Species

The Deschutes Soil and Water Conservation District is a proud sponsor of the "Play, Clean and Go" campaign

Invasive species are plants, animals, and microorganisms that are not native to a particular area. They are also 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.

weather you're riding, hiking, running or horse back riding there are ways you can do to prevent the spread of invasive species.
