Weed Spotters 2009-2016


The Weed Spotters Program is not currently active.

Our trained volunteers were familiar with the identification, costs and recommended control methods for some of our area’s MOST WANTED invasive species. Trained volunteers conducted weed inventories in the yards of Benton County. The Weed Spotter Volunteers helped identify weeds and provided residents with information about the invasive plants and additional actions and resources to help STOP the INVASION!

Weed Spotters provided FREE weed inventories to landowners in Benton County.

Weed Spotters volunteers helped landowners figure out how to get rid of blackberries what to do replace ivy with. Trained volunteers conducted weed inventories, and landowners received a binder of personalized information.

We can win this battle if we all PULL together!

Heath Keirstead was the coordinator of the Weed Spotters program.
