In 2010, Glacier National Park's Citizen Science Program began partnerning with the park's Intergrated Pest Management Program to put on an annual noxious weed blitz. Participants learn how to identify five targeted invasive plant species in the morning as well as learn how these species are harming our ecosystem. Attendees are also shown how to map invasive species found in Glacier's backcountry. After lunch, staff and volunteers head out to "weed infested" areas to pull noxious weeds.

This year marks the sixth year for Glacier National Park's Noxious Weed Blitz! This event will be held on Tuesday, July 21, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Community Building in West Glacier, Montana. For more information and to sign up, contact or at 406-888-7986.
