​Stay in the loop!

 

Now that spring has sprung, so have biocontrol bugs!

For many, spring comes with a laundry list of things to do and checking for biocontrol bugs may not be a high priority. However, if you intend to buy bugs or are concerned about invasive weed spread on your land, a quick check could save you time and money. 

What is the Voluntary Stewardship Program?

VSP is a completely voluntary and incentive-based approach to protecting critical areas and ensuring long-term agricultural viability in Douglas County. This program encourages agricultural producers to work together to avoid regulatory enforcement by recognizing and expanding land stewardship practices that increase the health and resiliency of our natural systems. Douglas County VSP offers technical assistance and cost-share projects for interested producers.
