MOJAVE WEED MANAGEMENT AREA (MWMA)

 

he Mojave WMA continues to be coordinated by the District, which organizes and hosts quarterly meetings and oversees ongoing projects and outreach efforts. The tamarisk beetle (Diorhabda) has been confirmed at Camp Cady in Newberry Springs and farther west and south along the Mojave River to as far as the Hinkley bridge in Hinkley, and the Vista bridge in Silver Lakes. Cal-Ipc has been working tirelessly on assembly bills to provide funding for the Weed Management Areas.After the onset of Covid-19 the CDFA pulled remaining funds and new funding for weed management areas has not yet been restored. The Memorandum of Understanding for the MWMA currently has 23 signatories from agencies such as San Bernardino County Dept. of Agriculture, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, California Dept. of Fish and Game, Joshua Tree National Park and Mojave National Preserve, to name a few.
