What makes the structure of your CWMA successful?

What is the highest priority species in your area?
Knotweed, false brome, European beach grass, gorse, French broom. 
Describe your most valuable outreach/education tool.
Public meetings and field trips/tours.
What are some of your most successful on the ground accomplishments?
Clematis vitalba control and restoration near the town of Yachats; European beach grass control to benefit the snowy plover, a T&E species; multiple knotweed control efforts in the Siuslaw basin.
List your highest priority on the ground projects and why they are high priority.
European beach grass control to save snowy plover nesting habitat and knotweed control to benefit anadromous fish habitat.
