Roosevelt County is asking residents to inform the Roosevelt Soil and Water Conservation District of any sightings of musk or scotch thistle on county right-of-ways for spraying.

PORTALES - The Roosevelt Soil and Water Conservation District is seeking community help to eradicate noxious weeds in Roosevelt and surrounding counties.

The district has a High Plains Cooperative Weed Management Area funded by a state grant.

"Our focus has mainly been on African Rue," said Dawn Privett of the conservation district. "We have been assisting landowners with spraying for the past two years."

County Manager Amber Hamilton is asking residents to contact Privett at 575-607-6383 if they see musk thistle or scotch thistle along county roadways. Hamilton said spraying will only take place in the county's right-of-ways.
