18th Annual Noxius Weed Fundraiser

The 18th Annual Noxious Weed Fundraiser will be held August 6, 2016 at the Jumping Horse Ranch on the Jack Creek Bench in Ennis, MT. Thanks to the generous support of the hosts, guests and donors, the “Weeds Party” continues to be one of the most successful fundraisers in the Madison Valley. The money raised is used to support the Weed Committee’s activities and projects, and to leverage private and public grant monies for a variety of weed control and educational projects. On average, for every $1 earned, an additional $10-$15 are leveraged and put on the ground fighting noxious weeds. This is accomplished by coordinating the efforts of many great partners.
