Natural Resources

Lemhi County

Lemhi County consists of 2,931,136 acres. The Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and State of Idaho manage 92 percent of the land within the county. The majority of ranchers run cattle on public grazing permits on both Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service lands.

Lemhi County has 47,159 acres infested with noxious weeds. Noxious weeds do not recognize fence lines or property lines and are therefore a universal problem.

Noxious Weed Education

Everyone has a responsibility to control noxious weeds on their property and to do their best not to spread weeds. There are a number of opportunities to learn about noxious weeds. Some of them include the weed night at Cattlemen’s Winter School, pesticide certification class in March, CWMA field days, calibration workshop and the Fall Showcase meeting.

If you are trying to control your weeds and do not know what weeds you have, you are welcome to bring a plant sample, including root and flowers, to the UI Extension, Lemhi County office to have it identified. We will help you determine the best control method for the weeds you have at your location.

Contact Shannon Williams for more information.

Lemhi CWMA Spray Days

The UI Extension, Lemhi County office works with Lemhi County Weed Control to host 10 spray days each year. On those days, private citizens may obtain herbicide to apply for the control of noxious weeds on their property for free. Herbicide can only be put into approved application equipment and is to be applied that same day. Weed identification and recommendations are also made on those days.  Spray days begin around mid-May and are completed by mid-June.

Contact Shannon Williams for more information.

Range

In Lemhi County, 93 percent of the county is public lands. The majority of the ranchers in Lemhi County graze their cattle on public lands during the summer time. Educational opportunities and resource assistance is offered to producers utilizing public lands in the form of workshops and directories. Range topics are covered as part of the Cattlemen’s Winter School each year.

Specialized workshops on the various forms of monitoring are hosted on an as requested basis. There is also a directory available of qualified people who will do contract monitoring. Contact the UI Extension, Lemhi County office for more information.
