Invasive Species Program Manager - MISC
The Conservation and Resource Development Division (CARDD) is responsible for providing technical and financial assistance to local governments, state agencies and private citizens for conservation, development, protection and management of the state’s natural resources.
The Invasive Species program manager within CARDD administers the Aquatic Invasive Species grant program and leads the continuous improvement and implementation of the Montana Invasive Species Council.
The Montana Invasive Species Advisory Council (MISAC) was formed in 2013 by Executive Order 13-2014 to advise the Governor on a science-based, comprehensive program to identify, prevent, eliminate, reduce, and mitigate the impacts of invasive species in Montana. The MISAC was continued beyond 2016 by Executive Order 21-2016 and was made into a statutory Title 2 agency called the Montana Invasive Species Council (MISC) with the passage of HB622 in the 65th Legislature.
