The Eastern Sierra weed management Area (ESWMA) is unique in that it encompasses 2.5 million-acre drainage basin with very little urbanization or agriculture
The control of any weed depends on the early detection of its presence. This web site (a handbook is available at the Bishop Field Office) will aid in the identification of 26 of the most common non-native invasive plants that occur in the Eastern Sierra.
Support for this work and handbook is provided by a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation under the "Pulling Together Initiative."California Department of Food and Agriculture, Inyo/Mono counties Agricultural Commissioner's Office, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, Inyo County Water Department, Bureau of Land Management (Bishop Field Office), Inyo National Forest, Toiyabe National Forest, California Department of Forestry, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Inyo/Mono Resource Conservation District, Inyo/Mono Counties Cattlemen's Associations, and the California Department of Transportation District 9.
