The IDAHO WEED AWARENESS CAMPAIGN was created to raise public awareness helping the people of Idaho understand the economic and environmental impacts of invasive weeds.  Our main goal is to encourage Idahoans to help develop and participate in invasive weed eradication and management programs, and to assist in preventing the spread of invasive weeds.

The IWAC created this web site to distribute information to the public, providing attractive and educational content.  A highlight of this website is our "Reference Library" providing information about each of Idaho's Noxious Weeds, including tips for identifying and eradication.

For an update on the ongoing issue of invasive species in Idaho, read the press release from Idaho Noxious and Invasive Weed Awareness Week 2019.
