The Nez Perce Soil and Water Conservation District recognizes the importance of addressing invasive species, in order to preserve land, agricultural, and recreation values. Invasive species in the United States cause major environmental and economic damages.
Curb the spread and minimize harmful effects of nonnative species that can:
- cause displacement of, or otherwise threaten, native species in their natural communities; or
- threaten natural resources or their use in Nez Perce County.
- Prevent introductions of new invasive species into Nez Perce County.
- Prevent the spread of invasive species within Nez Perce County.
- Reduce the impacts caused by invasive species to the area’s ecology, society, and economy.

Thanks to the Teton Conservation District in Jackson, WY for allowing us to “borrow” the language from their weed control web page. Their willingness to share reduced our time and costs in developing this segment of our web page!
