Funding Opportunity Description: Conservation of native landscapes is an ongoing management challenge with respect to the introduction and spread of invasive, non-native species. Land uses, ground disturbance, climate change, or wild fire are examples of catalysts that can influence spread. BLM will work cooperatively with a southern Humboldt County non-profit organization to regularly conduct invasive weed surveys, early detection and rapid response protocols, eradication, post-treatment monitoring and follow-up treatments for invasive weed infestations in the King Range NCA. The recipient would work with the BLM in surveying lands in the King Range to identify new infestations to treat before they become a greater problem, and monitor pre-existing known sites of infestation.
