MWCA Mission Statement

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

Our Areas of Focus

Networking – To create and sustain channels that encourage collaboration, participation, and sharing of knowledge and expertise.

Education – To provide non-biased and balanced collection, sharing, and dissemination of noxious weed knowledge to the membership and the public.

Research Assistance – To gather input from members to ascertain research priorities, to communicate priorities and needs to the research community, to assist in the funding process, and to relay research results back to the membership.

The MWCA is a 501(c)3 non-profit, which was started in the 1960’s by extension agents and weed managers. Over the years the MWCA has expanded to include professional weed managers, weed control businesses (grazing, commercial applicators, bio-control agent providers, re-vegetation and planning specialists), ranchers/farmers, educators, researchers, students, government officials at the city, county, state and federal levels, recreationalists, visitors to Montana and private landowners. We are funded primarily through membership dues, fees from educational trainings and publications, specialty plate license plate fees, and grants and donations.
