Humboldt - Del Norte Weed Management Areaupdated: January 2017

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. 

California's WMAs have proven to be an efficient and effective instrument for controlling the spread and impact of invasive weeds throughout the state. The program has grown to include (from CDFA program report) 48 WMAs covering all 58 counties. Because they are local efforts that involve all land management stakeholders, their work has strong local support.
