Noxious Weed Cost Share!

What is THAT plant? Call Rick Brooks, District Technican, today to schedule your free on-site evalution of your noxious weeds!  Your conservation district has a cost share program to help landowners financially with the cost of noxious weed treatment. The deadline for the fall reimbursement is November 28. Call Rick at 945-5494 ext 104 for your appointment!


Bookcliff Conservation Seed Plot

Come and check out the native seed plot located at Sween Acres, 3419 Grass Valley Road, Rifle, CO.  District staff and volunteers recently removed unwanted vegetation and signs for each grass were installed last fall.  The plot is a great tool for local landowners to see which native grasses are thriving in a non-irrigated site.  The public can view these species of grass at anytime to help determine seed mixes for their own property.  For more information contact the district office at 945-5494.

No Till Drill Rental

The no-till drill is available for rent for your fall planting!  Please call early to ensure that you are able to reserve a day or two to plant your seed.  For more information call the office at 945-5494 ext 115 or click on the "No-Till Drill" icon on the left.
