• One salt cedar plant can drink up to 200 gallons of water per day, which can lower water tables, impact fisheries and reduce available water for irrigation.

  • The root of leafy spurge can grow to depths of up to 25 feet! This allows it a huge competative advantage over native grasses and forbs.

  • Houndstongue seeds are teardrop shaped and covered with tiny barbs that stick to everything! 


  • Montana has many blue ribbon trout streams; always remember to clean your gear both before you enter and after you leave a recreation site. You don't want to help spread invasive plants or animals!
