Project Highlights  

Yuba County fire area yellow starthistle eradication

With project partners, Natural Resources Conservation Service and UC Cooperative Extension, the Yuba/Sutter WMA aerially reseeded 100 acres of land in Yuba County with non-invasive grasses to prevent invasive weed infestation.  The project area was previously covered with yellow starthistle, and had recently burned.

Sutter County weed mapping project

In 2001, Sutter County created maps of weed presence throughout the county.  The maps documented presence of Arundo donax and aquatic species, including parrotfeather.
