The Whatcom County Noxious Weed Control Board promotes awareness concerning management of listed noxious weeds such as tansy ragwort, knapweed, purple loosestrife, knotweed and their impacts on natural resources.
The Board generally meets the third Tuesday of every other month at 7:00 p.m. Please contact the Board office for specific dates and times.
The Whatcom County Noxious Weed Control Board has 5 County Council-appointed members representing the 5 Noxious Weed districts:
On August 7, 1986, Ordinance Number 86-68 gave the addition of Knapweed to both educational and policing activities. It also extended the terms of the Weed Board to December 31, 1991. In 1987, State Law RCW 17.10 underwent revisions that made it necessary to amend Whatcom County Code 2.27. On January 25, 1992, Ordinance Number 92-008 and 92-009 amended Whatcom County Code 2.27 and 2.27.130 were deleted to bring the Board into full compliance with Revised Code of Washington Chapter 17.10.
