Highlands Cooperative Weed Management Area Updated:08/2020

The Highlands Cooperative Weed Management Area was developed to facilitate effective treatment and coordinate noxious weed control efforts. The Highlands CWMA has developed common management objectives, set realistic management priorities, and identified priority weed species.

The goals of the Highlands CWMA are to: Prevent the introduction, reproduction and spread of noxious weeds and invasive exotic plants; Reduce the extent and density of established noxious weeds to levels that are acceptable; Implement the most economical and effective control methods for target weeds; Implement an integrated management system using appropriate methods of treatment and control; Educate the public as to the importance of proper weed management and get the needed media coverage to show what is being done.

The area covered by this Agreement includes Bear Lake, Caribou, and a portion of Bonneville Counties, Lincoln County, Wyoming and Rich County, Utah.

The major weeds of importance in the area include Dyers woad, Leafy spurge, Perennial pepperweed, and Yellow toadflax. Other noxious weeds such as Canada and musk thistle as well as hoary cress also receive attention. Major efforts are being made to control these weeds each year. In addition, reconnaissance for new invaders is done at every weed control activity. With the additional weeds added to the Idaho Noxious weed list the highlands CWMA has also focused on weeds such as hound’s tongue and salt cedar.
