Pull weeds in Glacier Park

Print Article

A hummingbird moth feeds on orange hawkweed — a noxious weed — in Glacier National Park.

The Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center and Glacier National Park invite volunteers for a day of hands-on learning during the annual Noxious Weed Blitz on July 18. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in West Glacier.

Participants will join restoration and integrated pest management biologist Dawn LaFleur to learn about the ecological impacts of noxious weeds and how to identify and remove five targeted invasive plant species.

“Bring your muscles, gloves, appropriate footwear, and drinking water,” LaFleur said.

Glacier National Park Conservancy will provide a complimentary lunch to this year’s “weed warriors.”

The event is free and open to the public. To register, RSVP by July 15, by emailing glac_citizen_science@nps.gov or by calling (406) 888-7986.

Once registered, participants will receive specific details about meeting location and parking.
