Several species of non-native plants have become a threat to the economic and environmental value of land in Gilpin County, Colorado. These plants are not indigenous to this country and have no natural predators or diseases to keep them in check. They are rapidly displacing native vegetation, causing a loss of native ecosystem stability and diversity, while affecting recreational resources.

The Colorado Noxious Weed Act, the state of Colorado has mandated that “a countywide plan must be implemented by every county to prevent further damage by these noxious weed species”.

The County has appointed the Gilpin County Weed Advisory Board, contracted with Colorado State University for a noxious weed program coordinator, and has resolved to adopt a Gilpin County Weed Management Plan, for the purposes of fulfilling its responsibilities with respect to the Act and managing all of the unincorporated lands in the County with respect to noxious weeds.
