The San Diego Weed Management Area (SDWMA) is a group of agencies, organizations, and individuals working together to control selected invasive plant species within San Diego County. Collaboration of the members within the SDWMA has created and continues to generate the success of this organization. 

The SDWMA holds quarterly meetings for stakeholders to coordinate efforts, and an annual meeting for networking, educating members and organizing future activities. All interested persons are welcome to attend annual meetings, where they will have the opportunity to listen to stakeholders present their program’s accomplishments and/or projected work. While there are a select group of invasive species targeted for mapping and control efforts within the SDWMA group, many stakeholders also work on additional weed species within their project areas, which they may also choose to discuss.

Opportunities arise for members of the SDWMA to develop positive relations with San Diego county citizens as well. Many stakeholder groups make direct contact with county residents on a daily basis. SDWMA members understand that educating the community, concerning the identification of invasive species as well as how to deal with them, is a practice that creates a more vested public in habitat conservation, our agriculture industry, and our natural resources. With invasive weed abatement costing California taxpayers at least $82 million each year, groups like the SDWMA require the help of numerous programs, agencies, and citizens to take control of this growing problem.
