   Mojave River Tamarisk, Arundo & Russian Olive eradication Project

  • The largest project for the WMA is the Tamarisk, Arundo and Russian-Olive Eradication program that is taking place along the Mojave River from the Headwaters in Hesperia to Barstow. Since February 2008, the WMA has removed 9,213 full acres of these invasive weeds (mostly salt cedar), or 1423 weed acres. This encompasses a total of 41.3 miles. This project is being carried out by the Mojave Desert Resource Conservation District. It is an on-going project, funded by Mojave Water Agency, a federal earmark via Mojave Water Agency, and Fish and Game Bio Funds. Retreatments are done as needed.
