Cooperative Weed Management

The Becker County Cooperative Weed Management Area (BCCWMA) in Minnesota
began in 2006 as a multi-agency and community effort to coordinate and implement
management and control of invasive terrestrial and aquatic plants. Once organized, a part
time position was initially funded through a National Fish and Wildlife Foundation
(NFWF) grant under the Pulling Together Initiative. The purpose of this grant and the
associated position was to begin control efforts for species agreed upon by the group in
an agreed upon focus area. This management plan is meant to expand upon the initial
efforts of the group to expand invasive species coordination and control to the entire county
and to formulate a plan to ensure the long term persistence of the Becker County CWMA
