Invasive Weeds

The spread of invasive non-native plant species is one of the greatest threats to the long-term environmental stability and health in the Four Corners region. More than 4500 invasive weed species sightings are documented, encompassing more than 10,000 acres of infestation. Russain Knapweed is the most prevalent species followed by Musk Thistle, Canada Thistle and Hoary Cress respectfully. For control measures, picture ID, fact sheets and maps see our website listed below.
