Weeds: Identify & Report Noxious Weeds...there's an app for that!

"Non-native invasive species can greatly alter our natural areas, impact wildlife, destroy crops, and even threaten our health and the health of pets and livestock.


Early detection is key to stopping the spread of noxious and invasive species. By reporting sightings of invasive plants we can better assess the extent of infestations and remove them before they spread and become a bigger problem."

See the flyer for more information.  Free app download directly here.

Recycling Done Right

Heads Up:  You may see people out and about looking at curb-side recycling as a part of a single-family recycling cart education project.  Teams of two people will be looking at your recycling bin, they will have County ID and driving a clearly marked Clark County vehicle.  Here's more info about this effort.  This project started yesterday and will continue for about four weeks.
