So what does the SFWMA do?
The SFWMA members cooperate to prevent the introduction, establishment and spread of invasive weeds in the City and County of San Francisco. The group has a two-part mission:
1) Employing an integrated strategy for exclusion, detection, eradication, and suppression of designated invasive weeds.
2) Education of the public, media, local office-holders, decision-makers, and public & private landowners about the identification, impacts, and management of invasive weeds.
The following goals represent the primary activities in which the SFWMA is engaged:
