Welcome to our website!

We hope it will help you learn about our local invasive plants and what our Cooperative Weed Management Area is doing to control them.

Cooperative Weed Management Areas are generally defined as "partnerships of federal, state, and local government agencies, tribes, private individuals, and various interested groups that manage noxious weeds or invasive plants in defined area,"*

*Florida Invasive Species Partnership (FISP) Published in Natural Area News, Fall 2008

The mission of our Cooperative Weed Management Area, as agreed upon by all partners, is to protect and restore habitat through the cooperative identification and management (suppression, control, or eradication) of noxious and exotic invasive plants in the Sinnemahoning Creek Watershed.

The stated goals of SIPMA are:

  • Create a sustainable coordinator position to manage and secure funding for projects
  • The early detection and rapid response to control noxious and invasive plant invaders in the watershed
  • Create a watershed database
  • Education and outreach to members of the general public who live in the CWMA.
