Noxious Weeds

Got weeds? We can help control them on your property.

Wildfires, overgrazing, transportation corridors and ATV trail travel encourages noxious weed infestations that affect rangeland, forested areas and--ultimately--property values. We collaborate with public agencies and form partnerships with private landowners to establish a higher and more effective level of week control in Teller and Park Counties.

Noxious Weeds Cost Share Program

Teller-Park Conservation District makes every effort to assist landowners with weed management services. Each year, the district's board of supervisors sets aside a specific amount of money to help offset the cost of weed management services for private landowners. This year, the cost-share program provides a rebate for landowners up to 50% or $400 (whichever is greater) of their costs for spraying. This offer is only valid on spraying services provided by the Teller-Park Conservation District.
