Invasive plants are hugely impactful on California's coastal regions. This proposed Advisor position will represent the first county-based UCCE academic tasked with managing weeds in natural areas. This will help to develop the natural resources management component of ANR, UC IPM, and UCCE. I strongly support this proposal and hope similar positions are proposed in the future for the central and southern coastal regions.
UC Cooperative Extension’s role providing information to natural resource managers has become even more critical with the loss of state and federal agency positions. This position will help natural resource managers on the North Coast complete their work in the most effective way possible. The California Invasive Plant Council works with land managers throughout California and relies on materials and expertise provided by UCCE advisors.
