We need your help to keep it from spreading to new places.
How you can help:
• Drive only on roads and trails away from weed infested areas.
• Clean your machine. Make sure you carefully clean your ATV

• Carry only certified weed-free hay for pack animals.
• Report new weed infestations to your local county weed

Pulling together, we can stop the spread of this deadly invader and
help protect big game habitat.
