Organization: A 17-member Committee representing state and federal agencies, universities and scientists of the region, industry and conservation groups, and private landowners oversees the Idaho Weed Awareness Campaign (IWAC).  IWAC is based at The Association Management Group Office in Meridian, Idaho.  It is funded through partnerships, cooperative agreements, and grants.

Mission: For the people of Idaho to understand the economic and environmental impacts of invasive weeds, and support the implementation of all aspects of integrated weed management.

Objectives:

  • To establish education programs on invasive weeds in Idaho schools.
  • To establish a knowledge threshold for media, government, and private entities related to weed control education in Idaho.
  • To develop a distribution network of information using and coordinating what is in place and by creating new educational items for use.
  • To create a strong public awareness foundation with the citizens of Idaho about the overall problem of invasive weeds and their direct effect on Idaho.
  • To enlist the support of Idahoans by providing a visual frame of reference so they can better identify particularly critical noxious weeds; know what actions they should take when they locate weed infestations; and how they can personally help in the prevention of further infestations of noxious weeds.
  • To form cooperative partnerships with public and private groups on weed control issues.
