We are pleased to welcome Monte Mattsson as the newest member of the WeedWise Program. Monte joined our team as a new WeedWise Specialist, in early March 2023. Monte is working on controlling, surveying, and mapping invasive species; conducting outreach to landowners; and collaborating with many of our partners to manage invasive weeds through the Clackamas River Invasive Species Partnership (CRISP).
Monte brings a wealth of knowledge and experience. Prior to joining the WeedWise program, Monte worked as Research Faculty with Oregon State University and as an invasive species biologist for the City of Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services, where he managed priority weeds with the City’s Early Detection Rapid Response Program.
We are really excited to have Monte sharing his skills and expertise with the WeedWise program. Not only does Monte bring a wealth of experience managing invasive plants, but he also brings a keen eye as a naturalist. We are excited to see how his experience and skills will positively impact conditions along the Clackamas River.
Please help us welcome Monte!
