Saltcedar Management Workshop, June 12, 1996


The Saltcedar Management Workshop was a huge success, attracting more than 150 people from 10 western states. Nine federal agencies were represented, along with four Native American tribes, four state agencies from California and Arizona, numerous local government entities, private consultants, pest control advisors, landscape and nursery businesses, three NGO's (nongovernmental organizations), and three Universities. The extent and severity of the saltcedar problem in the western US is apparent by the interest shown in this workshop.

The Saltcedar Management Workshop happened because of the hard work and thoughtful input by the organizing committee. These people came together one day last March, and in two hours, had outlined the whole workshop and suggested most of the speakers. The members of the organizing committee are listed on the following page. Most of these individuals were also speakers at the workshop. The papers included in this Proceedings should serve as an excellent reference both for workshop attendees and to those who could not join us in Rancho Mirage.
