Conservation District agrees to noxious weed plan

June 25, 2012

The Elk County Conservation District will enter into an agreement with the Sinnemahoning Cooperative Weed Management Area to focus an invasive and noxious weed management project primarily within the Sinnemahoning Watershed.
According to District Manager Steve Putt, the Bucktail Watershed Association obtained a grant through the federal government for the weed management project.
Putt noted that he has been working with the Bureau of Forestry, Pa. Game Commission and Sinnemahoning State Park for the past year.
"There is this group of agencies that are involved in this weed management area," Putt said. "The purpose is to not only identify problem areas but to also get some grant money to eradicate some of these problem plants.
"They have decided that it would be a good thing to have an MOU [memorandum of understanding] with the agencies and the organizations that are involved so that it gives more strength for when they are applying for grants, so it's not just a loose group of a bunch of different people."
