A Strategic Action Plan for the Sagebrush Biome
This document was the vision of the participants of the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (WAFWA), Western Invasive Weed Summit (2015 Summit), held in Boise, Idaho in the fall of 2015. Approximately 250 invasive plant species experts, private and federal land managers, biologists, administrators, and scientists attended the summit. One of the major outcomes of the 2015 Summit was the call to develop a multi-agency action plan to address the challenges and barriers created by the establishment and expansion of invasive plant species in the west. Without the collective wisdom of the 2015 Summit participants and their support for the development of the plan, this effort would not have been initiated. The resulting Action Plan is thus, based on information and experience from a broad range of agencies, both State and Federal, agricultural, and wildlife based. The final product is truly a collaborative effort of these diverse disciplines, uniquely linked by a common concern with the threat of invasive weed expansion into the sagebrush biome negatively, affecting the Western way of life, economy, and its native wildlife.
