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

I have spent the last couple of months working on some big publications and we are excited to be able to offer the newly revised “Why Should I Care” brochures. They look fantastic and in lieu of the lack of weed ID books (offered at $2.50 from MWCA) this publication is a perfect alternative and offered at $.50 each to members. This revised edition includes information on the Montana state law regarding noxious weeds, and overview of integrated weed management tools, reasons why you should care about noxious weeds, and all 32 state-listed noxious weeds are now included in this publication. Lastly it includes all Montana county weed contacts and what a person can do about noxious weeds. It really is a great tool to educate Montanans about noxious weeds and it is reasonably priced.

 

Why Should I Care Booklet Cover

Once again, our 2015 MWCA calendar is at the printers and should be ready here in a month or so. Those are offered at $2.00 each for members. We have great photos from across the state and a little weed education offered each month. Those calendars should be in the MWCA storage shed within the month.

 

If you are interested in either of these publications, be sure to contact us!  They are available for purchase in our online store.
