The Gallatin River is a blue ribbon trout fishery that provides crucial habitat for wildlife, water resources and recreational opportunities. Noxious weed infestations are increasing around the river, causing degrading water quality due to increasing sedimentation and flooding. Also, noxious weeds threaten native plants that provide food and cover for wildlife.

To help stop the spread of noxious weeds, the Madison-Gallatin chapter of Trout Unlimited will hold its fourth annual River Clean Up and Weed Pull on June 9. Last year, 28 volunteers set a record by pulling 1,060 pounds of noxious weeds. That’s over a half ton of noxious weeds.
