Noxious Weed Control

Noxious, invasive weed species threaten Utah's land. Prevention requires awareness and action by land managers as well as the general public, to recognize, report, and control new infestations before they have a chance to expand and spread.  Pictures of both the mature plant and rosette stage for identification of weeds, a brief description, and control methods are available at "Utah's Noxious Weed" Brochure

Beekeeping Workshops 

Weber County has held Basic Backyard Beekeeping, Advanced Beekeeping, and Apiary Management classes spring of 2014.

Backyard Chicken Class

If you are interested in raising a few chickens at home for egg production and other uses Weber County is offering another Backyard Chicken Class in 2013.

Agriculture Efforts Assist Farmers

Several programs are in place to assist farmers and ranchers striving to gain the most from their production efforts. Extension is also a great source for publications on many phases of agriculture.
