Bee-U-Tify Seed Packets are Available!

We have a limited supply of 2017 Bee-U-Tify seed packets still available for distribution. These seed packets have been provided by the Washington State Noxious Weed Control Board. Here is some information from the Board's website:

Our Pollinator-Friendly Flower Mix for 2017

Your commitment to protecting our environment, economic resources, and recreational lands from invasive, noxious weeds does not need to come at the expense of bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. For 2017, we are pleased to announce that our popular Bee-U-Tify seed packets contain species that are primarily native to Washington, along with a couple other ornamental species pollinators love.  We have custom blends for both Western and Eastern Washington. While these perennial species require more tender-loving care than our previous blends, they offer lovely flowers that return year after year.

If you would like to receive your free Bee-U-Tify seed packet, please call our office at (509) 754-2011, Ext. 4710.

Grant County Fair

Join us at the Grant County Fair during the third week of August! Stop by our booth and have any questions answered about noxious weeds and control methods.

Weed Free Hay Program

The weed free hay program was passed by the USDA Forest Service to help prevent the introduction of new weed seeds into designated areas on all Forest Service lands. Pack and saddle animals are required to use feed that is either commercially processed feed or crop products certified to be free of weed seeds. Invasive plants can be introduced into our wilderness areas via non-certified hay, mulch, straw and raw feeds. Learn more about certified weed free hay.
