Can’t hurt, I guess . . .
An executive order aimed at improving and streamlining Montana’s efforts to tackle the threat of invasive species was signed by Gov. Steve Bullock on Dec. 4.
The order establishes an Montana Invasive Species Council to serve as the overarching council to combat invasive species in the state — both aquatic and terrestrial. Bullock was joined by sportsmen, conservationists and land managers as he signed the order.
“Montanans cherish our outdoor recreation and spaces, and those spaces play a crucial role in our state’s vibrant economy,” said. “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.”
