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.

 

Our Website Is Undergoing an Upgrade

In the last five years we have done a considerable amount of work with our partners to keep the business side of our website secure, using the latest technology to preserve and protect your information.  This has included putting all registration, store, events, and broadcast communications on an encrypted and separate secure server from our main website.  We are now moving the main side of our website to an updated environment.  Some of the pages that will be impacted by this move are our home page, weed ID, classifieds, events, find my weed coordinator, other resources, and the online library. 

 As we work through this upgrade and transition of our website some of our webpages may be unavailable.  We ask for your patience as we move forward with this major upgrade.   We will provide you with direct links to help make the impacts as minimal as possible.  Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.  If you have any questions please contact Diana.

From the Director's Desk

It is always amazing when you can raise great money for noxious weeds. The MVRG Weed Committee held their annual fundraiser in the Madison this August and raised what Melissa Griffiths thought might be a record net. At the Weed Whacker’s Ball this past Saturday in Wise River, they raised over $20,000 again. Noxious weeds are not glamorous and often it is a hard cause to gain people’s attention. However, once people find out what noxious weeds are, many of them become quite passionate about them. Both of these events have been going on for a long time. I once was in charge of producing the MVRG Weed Committee’s function and then have been involved in the Weed Whacker Ball for many years and I can tell you that literally hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised collectively by these groups. It is nice to see that the support for the fundraisers does not wane.
