Montana Noxious Weed Education Campaign (MTNWEC)

 
Montana Noxious Weed Education Campaign Logo

 

“To educate the people of Montana about the economic and environmental impacts of noxious weeds while encouraging the public to participate in ecologically based integrated weed management.”

 

History

Since its inception in 1995, the Montana Noxious Weed Education Campaign has tailored its mission toward educating the people of Montana about the threats noxious weeds pose to Montana’s economy and environment.

 

Montana has 32 state listed noxious weed species that collaboratively affect about 7.6 million acres of Big Sky Country. Both new and continued infestations of these non-native species not only reduce the productivity of cropland and rangeland, infestations of noxious weeds diminish the productivity and biological diversity of ecosystems by  negatively impacting wildlife habitat and by affecting the vitality and survival of native species due to competition for space, nutrients and water.

 

The Montana Noxious Weed Education Campaign aims outreach efforts toward educating Montana residents to become proactive in the prevention, eradication and containment of noxious weeds through ecologically based integrated weed management.
