Land managers work together with landowners, Tribal members, hunters, anglers, hikers, youth groups and local community members to unite under a common goal: to reduce noxious weeds on Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front.
Each year, the Roundtable helps to organize and participates in numerous community and volunteer events across our project area on public, private and Tribal lands.
Our events mobilize about 200 volunteers each year, providing hands-on education on weed species, spread and management tools. With the help of these hard-working volunteers, we utilize appropriate methods for integrated weed management while bringing communities together for camaraderie and to celebrate caring for and keeping these places beautiful.
These events include:
- Three annual community weed pulls;
- Biological control insect collection and distribution;
- Drainage-based cooperative herbicide spray days, spraying weeds on public and private land with agencies and landowners;
- Engage Montana Conservation Corps crews with community-based projects.
