From those we've helped

Jennifer was amazing, this free service is outstanding. I cannot say enough about how incredible it is that we have this free resource at our fingertips. Wish other homeowners in Big Sky realized what is available to them and would utilize it. Some owners just don't seem to care about noxious weeds. We do - thank you

for all you do!!

The Alliance is such a valuable resource. Their help has let us become more independent and educated in how to address invasive species in our property and in the neighborhood.

Beyond diagnosing problems and outlining solutions, Jen provides a spectrum of options to consider and the respective pros and cons of
each. The result is a comprehensive strategy for
managing noxious weeds, along with promoting desirable native plants. With each visit over the years, she monitors my progress and identifies new priorities in my quest for a beautiful, healthy native landscape.

The greater Big Sky area is approximately 50,000 acres of private land which is parceled out to thousands of individual landowners.

 

The lack of resource management knowledge combined with the nature of a resort community creates an environment conducive to invasive species establishment and spread.

To address this, the Alliance works to empower landowners to manage invasive species on their own properties through free one-on-one site visits. 

 

We provide landowners with the tools and resources to

execute ecologically based invasive species management

using best management practices and adaptive management strategies.
