Spring has sprung in the Rogue Basin (Basin) and that means a busy time of year for all of us at the Jackson and Josephine County CWMA. Thank you to those who were able to attend our April meeting. We went over partner updates and weed work within the Basin and had a presentation on our Rogue Basin Aquatic Survey & Control grant. The grant is focusing on establishing an Aquatic Invasive Network within the CWMA. If you did miss it and are wanting more news and details on upcoming events, click here!
