About the Group

About Us

Formed in 2003, the Truckee Meadows Weed Coordinating Group helps federal, state, and local agencies and concerned residents fight weeds in Reno, Sparks, and southern Washoe County, Nevada. Group activities focus on finding and managing noxious weeds on public properties. These weeds are designated in Nevada Revised Statute 555 as so detrimental to our environment and economy that the landowner or manager is required to control them. This poses a challenge to local, state and federal landholders who lack adequate budget to manage parks, open space, rangelands and forest. By working together, group partners receive grant funding for weed survey, mapping, management and restoration projects.

Weed group members attend the 2012 Ecologically Based Invasive Plant Management training at Rancho San Rafael.
