Conserve Our Canyon
Grow Wild secures and provides funding to Custer Gallatin National Forest to hire the Montana Conservation Corps Wildlands Restoration Team, who are trained in noxious weed management.
We identify areas of concern and work closely with our partners to treat heavily used public lands, such as trailheads, fishing access sites, campgrounds, forest service roads, and river restoration sites.
While our team has been working cooperatively with CGNF to manage invasive plants in the Gallatin Canyon since 2007, the program was formalized in 2019, which is reflected in the numbers below.
The Upper Gallatin Watershed encompasses some of the most ecologically and economically important resources in our county, which provide vital habitat and water for fish, plants, wildlife, and the people who live and recreate in the area.
Conserve Our Canyon cooperative project aims to facilitate effective management
of noxious weeds in the Gallatin Canyon to protect its natural resources for the
benefit of all who live, visit,
and rely upon it.
