Working together to strengthen and support noxious weed management efforts in Montana.

Why Should You Care?

Invasive weeds are the greatest threat to Montana’s environment. When these invaders are allowed to invade and spread, they cause a reduction in wildlife forage, degrade fisheries through erosion and sediment buildup, reduce property values, and erode our beautiful viewsheds in Montana. Currently, Montana has approximately 7.6 million precious acres infested with state-listed noxious weeds, and several new and potentially devastating invaders knocking on the door at our borders.

From the Director's Desk

Purple loosestrife in Great Falls, rush skeletonweed in Beaverhead, Treasure, and Ravalli Counties, blueweed in Mineral and Lincoln counties. dalmatian toadflax in Carter county….new invasives in new territories have cropped up this summer and I’m hearing from weed coordinators all over that the weather conditions this year have contributed to an unusually healthy stand of noxious weeds. It is now the dog days of summer and weeds have such a stronghold this year that many weed districts are still running on high octane to try to curb infestations.

 

It pays to know your invasives. Remember that for yellow starthistle (and now there is a purple starthistle) there is a cash reward for finding it in a new location. Due to some serious private landowners diligence, new infestations are being found and reported across the state. Thank you for your help in finding and reporting invasives.

 

Don’t forget to sign up for the golf fundraiser, it is coming at us at mach speed!
