Douglas County also has a county-wide Cooperative Weeds Management Area (CWMA) which is a partnership of federal, state, and local government agencies, tribes, individuals, and various interested groups that manage noxious weeds collaboratively. We all know weeds don't stop at your neighbor's property line, so to combat their spread and prevent further infestations - organizations from all the county are pooling their resources to treat entire populations effectively. The DC-CWMA meets at least once a year if not more. Interested in updates? Contact Maggie Begoun to join their DC-CWMA e-mail list to get the latest news.
