Alpine & Upper Carson Weed Management Area

WMAs are local stakeholder groups working on weed projects. Typically, they are organized by county, through county Agricultural Commissioners' offices. All interested land management entities, public and private, are invited to participate. Official WMA partners sign a Memorandum of Understanding indicating their commitment to working on invasive plant problems to the extent resources allow. Each WMA develops a strategic plan that identifies their top priorities for local management. Together these partners plan and implement projects on-the-ground, and collaborate on mapping and public education. In the year 2000, there were fewer than 20 groups statewide—today there are 48 covering all counties.
