Document Description
The purpose of the Project is to treat infestations of invasive plants as quickly as possible to discourage future encroachment throughout the watershed. Mapping these species on an ongoing basis will allow River Partners to identify the impact of treatment and understand the progression with which invasive plants spread across the main stem and tributaries to the San Joaquin River. Ongoing monitoring activities will identify the success of treatments, usage of treated areas by target wildlife species, and provide analysis of evapotranspiration rates that will help the conservation community to better understand the impact of invasive species on water use. Proposed project objectives are to: • Implement control measures for invasive non-native plants. • Reduce invasive weed recruitment sources on the San Joaquin River, benefiting native vegetation, wildlife, water conveyance, and agriculture. • Promote native plant species recruitment. • Enhance and restore wildlife habitat values
