Weeds, and especially those classified as Invasive Weeds, are an anomaly in our area that directly affect the enjoyment and use of the watershed for our wildlife, recreation, and fire suppression. They cost us all money and time.
The Weed Warriors coordinate activities for the prevention and control of invasive weeds in the Truckee River watershed. Our activities focus on the exclusion, detection, containment and eradication of invasive weeds. These efforts concentrate on species listed by the California Department of Food and Agriculture and other species of local significance.
To understand our current weed status in the watershed, we have a corps of “Weed Warriors” who search the watershed for infestations, report them to a headquarters, and then dispatch a brigade of other warriors to remove or otherwise eradicate the invaders.
To this end, we host “Weed Walks” in the summer along with “Weed Pulls”. We have also established an interactive mapping web page to report possible weed infestations and we continue to coordinate our efforts with other concerned regional and state agencies.
