Control and Education
Through collaboration with the Ferry County Noxious Weed office, we are able to provide information and identification booklets about noxious weeds. We also offer calibration workshops for equipment used to control noxious weeds and we also partner with the Ferry County Noxious Weed office to provide a series of Aquatic Invasive Species workshops at Curlew Lake each summer.
Hands on Calibration
Each year, workshops are held throughout Ferry County providing “Hands-on Calibration Training” where participants learn the laws and safety of using pesticides, reading labels correctly, and practicing their new calibration skills while using backpacks, skidmounts, and a boom trailer. These classes are designed for the beginner or for those that would like a refresher course. WSDA pesticide credits available to licensed pesticide holders. Call the Ferry County Noxious Weed Board for information and dates (509) 775-5225, x1111.
