Project Highlights:

  Yuba County fire area yellow starthistle eradication

  • With project partners, Natural Resources Conservation Service and UC Cooperative Extension, the Yuba/Sutter WMA aerially reseeded 100 acres of land in Yuba County with non-invasive grasses to prevent invasive weed infestation. The project area was previously covered with yellow starthistle, and had recently burned.
