A message from Colorado Department of Agriculture...
CDA is proposing to amend the rules that administer the Colorado Noxious Weed Act. Read the "rule concept" which summarizes CDA's proposal. CDA os soliciting comments now until the administrative hearing is completed. Once revisions, if any, are made, the final rule becomes effective at the end of March 2020.
Comments submitted before the notice of administrative rule hearing in early December are considered informal, while comments submitted between the notice and the hearing (approximately one month) are considered formal. Both will be considered equally. Please feel free to distribute this email to any interested party. Direct comments to Steve Ryder or to Lara Duran. Comments should be specific to the proposed changes being made, although all comments will be reviewed and considered.
UACWMA Fighting Noxious Weeds for Two Decades!
The Upper Arkansas Cooperative Weed Management Area has been accomplishing amazing things since 1998! Patty Knupp Area 3 Biologist for USDA NRCS Southeastern CO came across some historic UWCMA files and shared a 2008 Powerpoint presentation here.
“You’ll probably recognize a few names,” said Knupp. “This is a HUGE accomplishment. Give yourselves a pat on the back. This organization has held together during many changing of the guards or ‘changing of the weed warriors!’”
Take a look at UACWMA’s first ten years of history.
