Did you know allowing noxious weeds to grow and spread on your property can be damaging to native flora and increase the risk of a wildfire spreading to your home? We saw in December just how quickly a wildfire can spread in a populated area. Do what you can to protect your property and family.
Join a free workshop April 16 to safeguard property and landscaping
Join land, vegetation, and wildfire experts to learn how to identify and eradicate these invasive plants during Douglas County’s Noxious Weed and Wildfire Prevention Workshop from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 16. The workshop is available online or in person.
At this free workshop, you’ll learn the role weeds play in the spread of wildfires in both suburban and rural areas, how to keep noxious weeds from taking over your landscape, and how to properly use herbicides and other techniques to control weeds on your property.
The workshop will be live-streamed — you may watch live on YouTube, or if you would like to ask questions during the event, participate remotely via WebEx. Attend in-person at the Philip S. Miller Building, 100 Third St. in Castle Rock. Registration is not required.
Douglas County has information for you about both noxious weeds and the vital role of wildfire mitigation online.
