Revegetation and Invasive Plant Control

NRS works to enhance and restore healthy watersheds through native plant revegetation and invasive plant removal.  NRS has developed and implemented revegetation plans for estuary, salt marsh, riparian, and upslope habitats for mitigation and restoration projects.  NRS works with the Humboldt Weed Management Area (HWMA) to identify and secure funding to treat invasive weeds in Humboldt County.  The NRS Watershed Program Manager, Craig Benson, is currently the co-coordinator of the HWMA and the regional spartina eradication coordinator for the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation, and Conservation District.  NRS has worked with Six Rivers National Forest for the last five years to inventory and treat invasive species in the Lower Trinity and Mad River Ranger Districts.
