Southern Appalachian Cooperative Weed Management Partnership
SACWMP works cooperatively to protect and restore the significant natural heritage of the Southern Appalachians by preventing, detecting, and controlling invasive exotic plants.
We primarily focus along the Appalachian National Scenic Trail (A.T.) corridor, USDA National Forest lands, National Park Service units, and along state roads and highways where invasive exotic plants and natural areas of high conservation significance occur. The collaborative management effort overcomes jurisdictional boundaries and the resource burden of individual agencies and organizations while establishing common goals and facilitating cooperation and shared environmental stewardship.
SACWMP would like to acknowledge the following funding sources for their support:
- National Fish and Wildlife Foundation
- Pulling Together Initiative
- Environmental Protection Agency
