Weed Laws

Cooperation with landowners and the public is integral to the management of noxious weeds. It is the desire of the Lewis County Noxious Weed Control Board that everyone look beyond jurisdictional boundaries and take an active role in the management of noxious weeds and the stewardship of Lewis County. –LCNWCB

Lewis County Noxious Weed Control Board carries out the mandates of the Washington State Weed Law RCW 17.10.
