BLM OR/WA - Noxious Weed Education, Awareness, Outreach, and Management in Harney County


Noxious weeds pose a direct and imminent threat to public and private lands, including increased risk of wildfire, decreased recreational opportunities, degraded wildlife habitat, degraded rangelands, and loss of production. These threats, just as the weeds themselves, cross many jurisdictional boundaries. Having a coordinated partnership facilitates a better coordinated, comprehensive approach to weed management throughout the county by combining the resources of existing and new groups in a concerted effort to educate the public and partners about weeds as well as coordinating weed control activities across all jurisdictions. The cooperators participate in a county-wide integrated weed management program that operates strategically in and will grow and adapt to the needs of Harney County and each of the partners. Previously, this goal was accomplished through the general direction of a Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA) Steering Committee comprised of a representative from each signing party involved, implemented by the CWMA Coordinator, who organizes activities and follows the guidance of the CWMA Steering Committee. The CWMA Steering Committee and CWMA Coordinator also provided a communication forum to keep all parties informed of weed control concerns and activities, and/or other resource protection activities relative to integrated weed management.
