Who is the KP-CWMA? Check out our 2019 Annual Report here.

Elodea is a freshwater aquatic invasive plant that threatens salmon habitat. The KP-CWMA has successfully eradicated it from 5 lakes. In 2019 we updated the IPM Plan for Eradicating Elodea on the Kenai.

To keep the peninsula free from harmful invasive plants, we need your help detecting and preventing the introduction of invasive species.

Help us Keep Alaska Wild & Free from Invasive Plants!

Welcome to the Kenai Peninsula CWMA

The Kenai Peninsula Cooperative Weed Management Area (KP-CWMA) is a volunteer organization dedicated to prevent the introduction and manage the spread of non-native, invasive weeds across the Kenai Peninsula.  KP-CWMA is composed of various non-profits, tribal organizations, and governmental agencies.  

Created in 2003, KP-CWMA and its many partners are leading efforts to manage invasives in public and private lands across the Kenai Peninsula.  Through our partners hard work, several species have been eradicated from the Kenai Peninsula and numerous acres of critical fish and wildlife habitats have been protected.  But the fight must go on!

To better manage invasive across the Kenai Peninsula, KP-CWMA is actively recruiting volunteers and partner agencies!  Use this website and learn more about all the exciting opportunities to educate youth, protect our invaluable natural resources, and prevent the spread of invasives across the Kenai Peninsula. 

For more information feel free to contact the Homer Soil and Water Conservation District at 235-8177 ext. 5.
