Additional Information on Eligibility
BLM has had a long history of interacting with Tri-County CWMA and has been involved since it's conception. Staff from Tri-County and Wallowa Resources, who is providing the project coordinator, are familiar with the noxious weeds of Wallowa County and their coordination abilities with all other parties is such that no other entity can coordinate effective weed treatments with the skill that Tri-County CWMA does. If another group were to be awarded this agreement it would significantly increase the costs for weed treatments and increase BLM needed oversight.
The BLM is entering into this agreement for the purpose of noxious weed inventories, treatments, and restoration of sites on public land in Wallowa and Asotin Counties, in conjunction with similar actions on other lands within the two counties. This will allow for a seamless approach to a problem shared by state, and private land owners and the BLM. Restoration of certain weed sites will also be part of this project.
