Strategies: a three-pronged approach will continue to be taken during the next three years, with WLCI funds primarily going toward the first "prong" (much of this in the Greys River drainage), and some funds going toward the second "prong":

1. Prevent the successful establishment of noxious weed species not yet established on National Forest System lands in the Greys River Ranger District.

2. Prevent the successful establishment of new infestations of spotted knapweed, leafy spurge, yellow toadflax, and Dyer’s woad beyond existing perimeters along roads, trails, and adjoining lands, and either eliminate existing patches or reduce the density of noxious weed densities to a point in which a native plant diversity is being approximated. (note: this involves the Lower Greys River and Middle Greys River priority areas; see shapefiles).

3. Prevent the successful establishment of new infestations of leafy spurge, yellow toadflax, spotted knapweed, and Dyer’s woad beyond existing perimeters in the backcountry of the Spring Creek drainage, along the Star Valley Front, and at higher elevations in the Wyoming Range and Salt River Range, and either eliminate existing patches or reduce the density of noxious weed densities to a point in which a native plant diversity is being approximated. (note: a key area for yellow toadflax is in the Salt River Range priority area, especially on the east side in the Greys River drainage; see shapefiles.)

4. Reduce the distribution and densities of other noxious weed species (musk thistle, houndstongue, black henbane, Canada thistle) to a point in which a native plant diversity is being approximated in infested areas. (note: this includes many areas in the Lower Greys and Middle Greys River priority areas; see shapefiles.)
