oxious weeds are great "hitch
hikers." They can be
transported, undetected, as
seed or fragments, on farm
equipment or recreational
vehicles. Waterways and wind
can contribute to the spread
onto neighboring lands.  A
successful district weed
program will benefit from a
district-wide cooperative effort.  
Noxious Weed Management Program
Sierra Valley Resource Conservation District
Sierra Valley RCD recently completed two agricultural lands improvement projects with
the assistance of grants awarded by Sierra Nevada Conservancy through the
"Preservation of Ranches and Agricultural Lands" Prop 84 Grant Program.


1.
 Sierra Valley Agricultural Water Quality and Habitat Enhancement Project
Project Manager: Carol Dobbas  cjdobbas@yahoo.com   

2.
 Upper Long Valley Creek Agricultural Lands Improvement Project
Project Manager: Victoria Fisher    victoria.russell@hotmail.com

Both Projects have successfully completed the second year of weed control treatments.  
Cooperating Landowners have provided positive feedback for reductions in weed
populations which will allow the re-establishment of productive forages.

Rick Reimer Pest & Weed Control Service provided a valuable service as a contract
partner to complete all weed treatments, as well as attending numerous public outreach
events to provide updates and answer questions regarding the field work.

Rick can be contacted for weed identification assistance during the treatment season
(May-October) at
rick_reimer@yahoo.com


If you would like to learn more about the projects, or learn how to obtain assistance in
identifying a troublesome weed on your property, please contact one of the Project
Managers listed above or your local SVRCD Board Member.
