Invasive weed removal Another successful season in the the river canyon has been completed through a Sierra Nevada Conservancy grant. Invasive weeds jeopardize native plant communities, livestock, recreational opportunities, and our local economy. Invasive removal creates an environment where native plans like our famous poppies and other wildflowers can thrive. Read more on our Ongoing Projects Page about the 2012 season of weed removal work and the partnerships that have made it possible.
