Park County Weed and Pest Control District

The Park County Weed and Pest Control District is a county entity that implements and pursues an effective program for the control of designated noxious weeds and pests. It promotes and coordinates the management and control of noxious weeds and pests through integrated pest management techniques, cooperation with landowners, agencies, organizations, and by providing technical expertise and educational opportunities to all within the county.

In addition, the district provides support to the University of Wyoming Cooperative Education Service to provide horticultural specialists in both Cody and Powell. One of the services provided by the district is the sale of pesticides to the local taxpayer. These are generally products for the control of noxious weeds and pests. To provide services across the county, the district has three facilities located in Powell, Cody and Meeteetse.

Park County Weed and Pest is also responsible for enforcing the Wyoming Weed and Pest Act. Park County is one of the few districts that have a district-wide quarantine which requires that before any crop can be harvested and moved off the land it was grown on, it must be inspected and released by a district staff member.


  • Technical assistance to set up a weed or pest management program using integrated management.
  • Cost-share programs which reduce the cost of managing certain weeds or pests. These programs vary from district to district; check with your district supervisor for details and availability of cost-share programs in your county (designed by the District Boards).
  • Special programs may be established to meet specific local needs. If the problem is significant, some weed or pest species may be classified by law as "declared".
  • Provide an inspection service to attest your fields meet Wyoming Certification Standards and certify the resulting forages are certified weed-free.
  • Tap the resources of the Wyoming Weed and Pest Council, the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming Department of Agriculture, and various other federal, state, and private organizations.
