Mount Rose Noxious Weed Monitoring and Treatment #5
Friends of Nevada Wilderness seeks to treat approximately 75 acres of noxious weeds on Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest lands within the Truckee River Watershed. Noxious weeds out-compete native plants and as a result, they damage water quality, contribute to soil erosion, and degrade plant and animal habitat. Removing noxious weeds will help retain and improve watershed health by allowing native plant communities to thrive without the competition from noxious weeds.
This project satisfies the TRF Grant Priorities I, II and VI – Aquatic Invasive Species, Watershed Improvements and Stewardship and Environmental Awareness. The project will focus on eradicating noxious weeds in the Mount Rose Wilderness, which is critical due to its immediate proximity to the Truckee River.
