Noxious Weeds

Noxious weeds are present throughout the entire canyon. Although aggressive control efforts are occurring, these undesirable non-native species continue to thrive and rapidly reproduce. In some areas, noxious weeds have out-competed native vegetation resulting in significant loss of vegetation, wildlife diversity, and recreational value. The public can help the managing agencies in their battle against these weeds. You can help by: learning to identify noxious weeds, reporting weed infestations to the Prineville BLM, and by participating in community and volunteer weed control programs.
