Thanks for joining the fight

The IDAHO WEED AWARENESS CAMPAIGN was created to raise public awareness helping the people of Idaho understand the economic and environmental impacts of invasive weeds. Our main goal is to encourage Idahoans to help develop and participate in invasive weed eradication and management programs, and to assist in preventing the spread of invasive weeds.

EDUCATION

KNOWLEDGE

To establish a knowledge threshold for media, government, and private entities related to weed control education in Idaho.

NETWORK

To develop a distribution network of information using and coordinating what is in place and by creating new educational items for use.

AWARENESS

To create a strong public awareness foundation with the citizens of Idaho about the overall problem of invasive weeds and their direct effect on Idaho.

SUPPORT

To enlist the support of Idahoans by providing a visual frame of reference so they can better identify particularly critical noxious weeds; know what actions they should take when they locate weed infestations; and how they can personally help in the prevention of further infestations of noxious weeds.

PARTNERSHIPS

To form cooperative partnerships with public and private groups on weed control issues.

Get Involved

The IWAC web site is a great tool for identifying weeds and networking resources around the state. The effort has just begun, however, and now citizens, students, families, organizations, businesses and agencies are invited to help continue to add valuable information, knowledge and ideas to the site this year and in the future.
