Map Legend

Noxious Weeds Outdoor recreationists who travel on remote roads to trailheads or who ride ATVs off roads or designated trails may be unknowingly spreading weeds with their vehicles. Recreationalists can help control noxious weeds to stop them from spreading. • Drive only on roads and trails away from noxious weed infested areas • Vehicles can carry noxious weeds from one area to another. Make sure to carefully clean ATVs, vehicles and trailers before taking them to a new area. Even a few seeds can spread noxious weeds to new areas. • Remove weed seeds from dogs, hiking boots and other gear. • Report weed infestations to Okanogan County Noxious Weed Board, 509-422-7168.
