Amador County 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. 
Meetings: Two to four meetings a year at the Agriculture Commissioners Office
Formed: 2008

Project Highlights:

  • Dry Creek salt cedar eradication Project
    • Amador WMA is working on eradicating salt cedar from 7 miles of Dry Creek. Project activities include the use of hand tools to cut tamarisk growing in the streambed and on the banks of Dry Creek and the chemical treatment of all stumps. The cut vegetation will be piled and burned. There are 225 sites in about seven miles of Dry Creek to be treated.
