- Weed Day is to encourage wilderness stewardship – We want to protect the Cache National Forest from invasive weeds.
- Logan Canyon has 13 endemic wildflower species – this is the only place they grow.
- There are 54 weeds that have been declared noxious by the state of Utah.
- Invasive weeds have been called a raging biological wildfire:
- They impose economic losses to agriculture, and
- Irreparable ecological damage to wildlands.
- Outcompete native biodiversity.
- Cause the loss of the ecosystem services of native plants which serve as host plants for insects and provide food, pollen and nectar.
