Project Highlights

The WMA, in partnership with Colusa and Glenn County Agriculture Departments, is working to protect 300 gross acres of grazing rangelands near Sites Reservoir in Colusa County. The project area has been chemically treated to remove purple starthistle.

One half mile of land along Bear Creek in Colusa County has been chemically treated for arundo and tamarisk to protect the riparian area. Plant material was removed after the chemical treatments. Project partners include Bureau of Land Management, Colusa County Resource Conservation District, CALFED Bay-Delta Program, and University of California, Davis.
