Kenai Peninsula -
Cooperative Weed Management Area (KP-CWMA)

Since the spring of 2003 the Homer District has participated in developing the Kenai Peninsula Cooperative Weed Management Area (KP-CWMA). The intent of this management area is to bring those responsible for managing invasive plants across the Kenai Peninsula into a collaborative forum so that they may collectively:

- develop common management objectives;

- set realistic management priorities;

- facilitate effective treatment;

- coordinate efforts along logical geographic boundaries.

From its inception the Soil and Water Conservation Districts responsible for the peninsula (Homer, Kenai and Alaska Districts) have taken leadership roles in creating this management area. It is our belief that by effectively eliminating political, management and ownership boundaries when addressing the problem of invasive plants, the probability of successfully combating their spread into natural areas is greatly increased.

MOU Signatories Include: Soil and Water Conservation Districts, US Forest Service, Homer and Kenai NRCS, the City of Homer and Seldovia Native Association
