Weed Surveys and Treatment in Upper Mill Creek


An essential part of the project was to rebuild the capacity of the Marion County Weed Control District which has been inactive in recent years.  Weed control districts are the repository for invasive plant information and the group responsible for finding solutions to noxious weed problems in the county. Each county in Oregon has a weed control district, either standing alone or as part of the county governance, SWCD, or other organization. This project worked to form a lasting partnership that will help the Marion County Weed Control District thrive.
