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!
Thank you to Courtney Gattuso for her presentation on the Western Invasives Network (WIN) at our February CWMA meeting. This launched an awesome discussion among members on how our CWMA may use the WIN to enhance collaboration and coordination! In other news, Nate Gehres of the Applegate Partnership & Watershed Council is now the environmental stewardship representative for the Oregon Invasive Species Council! Thank you for your participation Nate and we can’t wait to hear more about it! Additionally, Kyle Strauss was awarded the Significant Weed-Finder plaque at the Oregon Inter-agency Noxious Weed Symposium in December, congratulations! Let’s keep up the great work!
