Wildlife and Weeds
Boone and Crockett Club's Conservation Education Program

Mr. McWeevil
What do wildlife, weeds, weevils, and warriors have in common?
WILDLIFE depends on palatable and diverse plant communities to sustain  healthy populations.
WEEDS invade plant communities, decrease biodiversity, and reduce desirable forage.
WEEVILS that are host-specific are one weapon to decrease noxious weeds and allow desirable plants to re-establish.
WARRIORS are the people who are working to battle noxious weeds through education and action.

Boone and Crockett Club's K-12 Conservation Education  Program  is excited about the opportunity to work with the Whitehall Project to learn how to effectively integrate noxious weed education into our overall conservation education program. Adele Stenson and Allyson Hoof participated in a bio-control workshop in August 2004, where our role in weed management began to be realized.  We gained invaluable information to form an action plan that we can take home and put to work in our education program in Dupuyer, Montana on the Rocky Mountain Front.
