Purple loosestrife is a destructive noxious weed that takes over wetlands, impairs the flow of water, destroys wildlife habitat and degrades native communities. The Front Range Purple Loosestrife group began in 1993 by Dave Weber, Retired CDOW Biologist. This team is still working together today and makes great progress every year controlling purple loosestrife. Come learn how you can help be part of the solution!
