Houndstongue seeds are teardrop shaped and covered with tiny barbs that stick to everything!
Montana has many blue ribbon trout streams; always remember to clean your gear both before you enter and after you leave a recreation site. You don't want to help spread invasive plants or animals!
Sulfur cinqefoil is quickly invading and establishing in much of Western Montana, look for it in meadows, roadsides, rangelands, forested areas and disturbed sites.
Houndstonge seeds are easily transported on our clothes, shoes, and animal companions. Remember not to 'Pick and Flick'; dispose any seeds you find into a trash recepticle.
