WEST GLACIER, Mont. [June 14, 2022] – The Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center (CCRLC) and Glacier National Park invite volunteers for a day of hands-on learning during the Annual Noxious Weed Blitz on July 19, 2022. The event will take place from 10 am to 3 pm 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.

The event is free and open to the public. To register, RSVP by July 14, 2022, by emailing glac_citizen_science@nps.gov or by calling (406) 888-7986.

A complimentary lunch will be provided by the Glacier National Park Conservancy to this year’s “Weed Warriors.”

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