Fall Invasive Weed Disposal

Sundays, September 22 & 29 from 10:00am – 4:00pm: bring your invasive weeds to the Bainbridge Island Transfer Station and the Land Trust will pay for disposal!

Invasive plant species are one of the leading causes of vegetation biodiversity loss. They spread quickly and can displace native plants, prevent new native plant growth, and create monocultures. Lack of diversity among native plants reduces the quality and quantity of fish and wildlife habitat. Remove your invasives now and make room for native plants come late fall when the weather is best for planting!

Mark your calendars for our Native Plant Sale, October 4 & 5. Native Plants are built to withstand our unique climate with our long, wet winters and our dry summers. They are also proven to be more resistant to disease. Click here to learn more about the sale and view the complete list of plants!
