Whether it is seeing knapweed replacing native wildflowers in your favorite family camping spot, struggling to keep leafy spurge from taking over livestock range, or keeping thistles out of crop lands, invasive plants impact Montanans.
Plant Invaders Trunk contains resources to help students learn about ecological and economic impacts of invasive weeds. Scientific plot surveys, investigations, and other activities teach students about noxious weeds in MT. These lessons are best suited for grades 3-5 but can be easily adapted for students in other grades.
All of Glacier's traveling trunks are free of charge and can be borrowed for 2-4 weeks at a time, but must be picked-up and dropped-off in person. (Sorry, it is not possible to mail the trunks.) To arrange to borrow a trunk please submit a reservation form found on the main Traveling Trunks page.
