CWMAs

Cooperative Weed Management Areas (CWMA)

CWMA's are local partnerships representing a diverse group of individuals, organizations, and agencies who share a geographic area and thus have similar weed concerns and issues.

WIN has assisted in the formation of eight formal local groups (see right)  that coordinate the partners on-the-ground weed inventory, control, prevention, and educational activities.  

CWMA partners educate landowners and the general public about controlling and preventing the spread of invasive weeds though tours, workshops, displays, and volunteer activities such as ivy pulls or fish and wildlife habitat restoration projects. 

The majority of the CWMA's have a long-term management plan, a yearly operating plan, and a memorandum of understanding that demonstrates commitment to partnering organizations.

Current CWMAs in operation are listed below.
