Eleven Mile & Spinney State Park Noxious Weed Management Plan

Eleven Mile & Spinney State Park Noxious Weed Management Plan

Blue Mountain was contracted to update the noxious weed inventory and create a new management plan for both parks, which comprise 7,545 acres of rangelands, forests, wetlands and recreational facilities. Field inventories and interviews were conducted and former assessments were utilized to create a new weed map and to track suppression efforts. In compliance with State Park conventions, recommendations were prioritized into near-, medium- and long-term objectives that included activities such as prevention, detection, suppression (via biological, cultural, chemical and mechanical means) and restoration.
