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.
Members of the Truckee Meadows Weed Coordinating Group include representatives from our partner agencies. Concerned area residents, Homeowner's Associations, organizations with similar missions and others affected by weeds are also encouraged to join the group and/or attend the group's meetings.
