Noxious Weeds

Town declares open season on Noxious Weeds

May is here, and it won't be long before we're in full bloom. Unfortunately, there will also be noxious weeds growing along with the native plants and flowers. The term "noxious weed" is reserved for the most aggressive and invasive species of weeds that are non-native to the area. These weeds spread rapidly, and can quickly overtake our local environment.

In their native areas, they are kept in check with natural controls, such as the climate, insects, and other plants. In our region, however, they lack these natural controls. This allows noxious weeds to spread aggressively, crowding out native plants, dominating crucial wildlife habitat, and destroying local eco-systems. 

The Town works hard to prevent noxious weeds from spreading on Town land, open space, and trails, but we need your help. Learn more and get involved to prevent noxious weeds from taking over our local eco-systems. 

Get Involved:

  1. Watch our short educational video on "Noxious Weeds and Snowmass Village," which shows the noxious weeds of the region, how they spread, and how you can control them. 
  2. Visit Pitkin County's Weed Management webpage, and learn how to identify different species of noxious weeds.
  3. Find local Licensed Commercial Applicators to treat noxious weeds on your property.
  4. Join us for the 2017 Community Weed Pull, where we will be rolling up our sleeves and treating weeds the old fashioned way.

  2. Community Engagement

  4. Safety
  5. A Continued Commitment to Resiliency
  6. Regionalism
