Lower Gem Cooperative Weed Management Area Updated:08/2020

The Lower Gem Cooperative Weed Management Area was developed to facilitate effective treatment and coordinate control efforts over the long term. The Lower Gem CWMA has developed common management objectives, set realistic management priorities, and identified priority weed species.

The goals of the Lower Gem 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 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 the southern half of Gem County.

The major weeds of importance in the area include Scotch Thistle, Hoary Cress, Purple Loosestrife, Eurasian Watermilfoil, Rush Skeletonweed, Canada Thistle, Poison Hemlock, Field Bindweed, Parrotfeather Milfoil, Houndstongue and Puncturevine.  Major efforts are being made to control these weeds each year.
