Weeds are tough invaders that can quickly dominate your backyard. These non-native, invasive plants crowd out native plants that provide habitat for wildlife and some of them can harm you and your children and even your pets.
All noxious weeds are hard to control and will only get worse if you leave them alone. Join Woodland Park Zoo and King County’s Noxious Weed Control Program to learn more about the threats noxious weeds pose, as well as how to identify and eradicate some of our area’s worst noxious weeds.
