Getting Started

We would like to welcome you to the Montana Invasive Species Education project (MISE). This educational project has many components, including posters, invasive species ID cards, lesson plans, and resource documents. The project was a collaborative effort between the following organizations in order to combine resources into one comprehensive educational unit: DNRC, NRCS, the Montana Department of Agriculture, Fish Wildlife and Parks, Montana Noxious Weed Education Campaign, and other agencies who supplied time and funding. Many photographers donated their photos so that students could see actual exceptional photos of pollinators, and to them we give a huge thanks!
