2014 Whidbey Island
Karen Bishop, District Manager
Most people agree that conservation works best when people who live and work in an area learn to take care of their own natural resources. As legal sub-divisions of Washington State government, conservation districts are self-governed by a five-member volunteer board that establishes local priorities and sets policy. The Whidbey Island Conservation District (WICD) Board is composed of local farmers, landowners, and concerned citizens and is dedicated to maintaining Whidbey Island's renewable natural resources. Its priorities and goals include:
Noxious Weed Fact Bulletin
Did you know that the Washington State Noxious Weed Board adopts a state weed list each year (Chapter 16-750 WAC), in accordance with the state noxious weed law? (Chapter 17.10 RCW) Noxious weeds are then separated into classes A, B, and C based on distribution, abundance, and level of threat. Property owners are required to control the spread of class B & C weeds, or eradicate class A weeds.
Do you know how to identify these weeds?
WICD has partnered with Island County Noxious Weed Coordinator, Janet Stein, to distribute Noxious Weed Fact Bulletins. Anyone who signs up for this program will receive periodic emails with a detailed description and photos of a targeted noxious weed.
