The 2015 Grays Harbor County Noxious Weed Control Board:

  • Ernest Nelson, chair – District 5
  • Louis Messmer – District 2
  • Vacant – District 3
  • Rod EastonĀ – District 1
  • Grace Stiller – District 4
  • Dan Teuteberg – ex-officio

The State Weed List is designated by the Washington State Noxious Weed Control Board.

Each County Weed Board has the flexibility to address local weed control priorities. Developing annual county lists from the State Class A and B designates and then choosing from the rest of the State B & C lists can most effectively target weed invasions on a local level. The Grays Harbor County Noxious Weed Control Board meets on the second Wednesday of every month from 10:30 to noon at the WSU Extension meeting room in Elma. The public weed hearing for creating the County’s weed list is usually held at the end of February.

By controlling noxious weeds landowners protect life and health, improve habitat for fish and wildlife, maintain native plant communities and minimize the impacts to agriculture production. All state listed noxious weeds are non-native plants that have been introduced to Washington through human actions.

County field staff are available for community education programs and consultations with land owners to discuss weed management options including measures to prevent the establishment of noxious weeds on their own property.
