Upper Snake River Cooperative Weed Management Area Updated:06/2015

The Upper Snake River Cooperative Weed Management Area (USRCWMA) comprises Bonneville, Teton, Madison, Jefferson and Bingham Counties in partnership with state and federal agencies which manage lands within those counties. The USRCWMA coordinates area-wide activities to detect, prevent, contain, control, and eradicate noxious weeds on public and private lands. Noxious weeds of major concern include: Leafy Spurge, Spotted Knapweed, Diffuse knapweed, Russian knapweed, Canada thistle, Musk thistle, Plumeless thistle, Hoary Cress, Dalmation and Yellow Toadflax, Purple Loosestrife, Dyer’s Woad, Rush skeletonweed, Houndstounge and Tamarisk. The rapid spread of these noxious weeds is a serious threat to the ecology and economy of eastern Idaho.
