MONTANA
INVASIVE SPECIES


Invasive species harm our lands, waters and native species.

Report an Invasive Species

Reporting suspect and/or invasive species is very important! In Montana, where you report invasive species depends on what kind of plant or animal they are, so that the correct agency can respond to your report.
