There are many ways to combat weeds, and one that is gaining traction in Montana due to the recent successes of @montanabiocontrol is the use of Biological Controls. Biological control introduces natural predators (insects) to the noxious invasive species throughout Montana. Montana State Parks AmeriCorps has been working to utilize this third method of combating weeds, in conjunction with chemical (spraying) and manual (weed pulls) efforts.

Another part of Montana State Parks AmeriCorps busy summer was tabling with junior ranger materials, furs, and skulls at the Butte Folk Festival. Approximately 200 people stopped by to learn about #MontanaFWP (Fish, Wildlife, and Parks). Our visitors ranged from kids barely reaching to the table to adults intrigued by the display. at Butte, Montana

At Montana State Parks AmeriCorps takes the war on weeds seriously! First, comes education on the impact of the weeds. Second comes preventing the spread of weeds (hence the boot brush below the sign). Our members installed two of these innovative interpretive stations at #lewisandclarkcaverns during our All Member Gathering. at Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park

While doing a little spring cleaning, we came across this gem. I don't have a clue why we have these, or even how far we have to throw this Thursday back too... Here is a shout out to our fellow conservation program under the big sky, @mtcorps Can anyone date this patch? . . . #ServeMT #americorps #AmeriCorpsWorks #GettingThingsDone #mtspamericorps #MTExploreMore #tbt #throwbackthursday

Every year, MSPA members coordinate with local communities and volunteer groups to improve our State Parks. In honor of Arbor Day, our 2016 member coordinated with University of Montana to have volunteers to plant 200 Western Larches around Milltown State Park in burn pile scars. Larches were original to the confluence area, but haven't been seen there in over a hundred years. Here's to bringing back their golden fall glow to the Confluence!! #MTSPAmericorps #mtstateparks #milltownstatepark #arborday #americorps #AmeriCorpsWorks #ServeMT #ExploreMT #bigskycountry #getoutside #volunteer #spring #volunteer #nationalvolunteerweek #nvw at Milltown State Park

For the last four days, our AmeriCorps members went through the National Association of Interpretors' Certified Interpretive Guide Training. They learned about the history and principles of interpretation, as well as got plenty of practice. Today culminated in everyone presenting excellent 10 min programs. We even had a demonstration of a Buffalo Runner from #firstpeoplesbuffalojump Thanks Charles!! . . . #AmeriCorps #ServeMT #mtspamericorps #mtstateparks #MTExploreMore #GettingThingsDone at Lubrecht Experimental Forest

The last, but not least goal of the Montana State Parks AmeriCorps programs is to improve the community outreach in our State Parks. It is through community partners that AmeriCorps members raise awareness of our State Parks in our communities and state wide. Here is one of our former members "Giving a Hoot!" with Woodsy the Owl. . . . #MTSPAmeriCorps #ServeMT #AmeriCorps #MTStateParks #MTExploreMore #AmeriCorpsMembers #GettingThingsDone #AmeriCorpsWorks #environmentalstewardship #woodsyowl
