Northern Lynn Canal Cooperative Weed Management Area

Public, private and tribal landowners, land managers and land users throughout the Northern Lynn Canal (including the communities of Haines and Skagway) are concerned with invasive plant infestations. Both existing infestations and those that could occur in the future are of concern. Invasive plant infestations reduce the biological, agricultural, recreational and economic value of the land, decrease native plant populations and can also degrade salmon habitat and other aquatic ecosystems. Preserving the health and diversity of native plant and wildlife species and their habitats is thus vital to the economic and ecological well-being of the Northern Lynn Canal and all of Alaska.  The goal of the Northern Lynn Canal Cooperative Weed Management Area (NLCCWMA) is to address invasive plant concerns and to facilitate the management of high priority infestations (through various treatment methods) for the purpose of preventing the reproduction and spread of weeds into, within and from the boundaries of the Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA). To accomplish this goal, members of the CWMA will work together to develop strategies for appropriate control efforts.  We are concerned about existing infestations and those that could occur in the future because preserving the health and diversity of native plant and wildlife species and their habitats is vital to the economic and ecological well-being of the Northern Lynn Canal and all of Alaska.
