THINK AGAIN!

Noxious weeds are

invasive plant species 

that are able to establish on many sites, grow quickly,

and spread to the point of disrupting biological communities or ecosystems.

 

Noxious Weeds... 

Replace native plant communities

Increase soil erosion

Degrade water quality

Damage fish & wildlife habitat

Decrease the value of land

Reduce recreation &

hunting opportunities

Increase trail maintenance costs

The Gallatin Invasive Species Alliance is a 501c3 non-profit organization

working to protect natural resources from the threats of invasive species.
