California Fish and Wildlife as well as the district are concerned about the amount of Pepperweed now taking over in the Mojave riverbed. As pepperweed is a very difficult invasive species to eradicate, different avenues to attack the weed are being discussed including a possible biological control. The pepperweed is prolific in the Mojave Narrows Park and downstream where it has taken advantage of a fire at the Mojave Desert Land Trust’s Palisades Ranch riverbed. Discussions are taking place to eradicate and/or control this very invasive species.
