Protecting Montana's Economy, Natural Resources
and Public Health.

The Montana Invasive Species Council is a statewide partnership working to protect Montana’s economy, natural resources, and public health through a coordinated approach to combat invasive species.

MISC’s work is guided by the objectives outlined in the Montana Invasive Species Framework, which is organized by the five tenants of invasive species management:

  • Coordination
  • Prevention
  • Detection
  • Rapid Response
  • Control

"Montanans cherish our outdoor recreation and spaces, and those spaces play a crucial role in our state’s vibrant economy. It is imperative that we do everything we can to protect Montana from the threat of invasive species that disrupt our land, water, and native species. None of us want another knapweed spreading across Montana."

—Governor Steve Bullock
