Ag Officials Investigate Invasive Snail (Aug 15, 2012)
Montana Department of Agriculture.
Montana Department of Agriculture and U.S. Department of Agriculture officials are investigating the discovery in Montana of a land-dwelling snail species not previously found in the western United States. USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service confirmed August 9 that terrestrial snails collected about 20 miles southeast of Great Falls were eastern heath snails (Xerolenta obvia), a species native to eastern Europe that spreads by attaching to cargo containers or other conveyances used in international shipping.

Common Native and Invasive Wetland Plants in Montana Booklet (May 2012)
Montana Department of Environmental Quality.
This booklet was developed, primarily for the non-botanist, to assist in identifying potential wetland areas based on the present. Because wetland management and regulation is complex, we wanted to provide a basic tool to assist local government staff and decision makers, among others, in identifying potential wetland areas. This booklet is not meant to be used to identify the jurisdictional boundaries of a wetland, but rather to identify potential wetlands that may need further evaluation by a trained wetland scientist.

Montana's Statewide Strategic Plan for Invasive Aquatic Plant Management and Resource Protection (2011; PDF | 797 KB)
Montana Noxious Weed Summit Advisory Council.
The purpose of this plan is to provide a statewide framework and strategy for Montana stakeholders to protect aquatic resources, manage invasive aquatic plants, and provide guidance and direction to on-ground managers. This plan was developed and supported by invasive plant managers in Montana including state, federal, county, and private stakeholders. The Noxious Weed Summit Advisory Council has responsibility for identifying and supporting leaders for action items identified within this plan. These leaders will provide local and statewide direction and organization to facilitate aquatic plant management programs in Montana.
