New Publication: Landowner Assistance Programs for Conservation of Greater Sage-Grouse in Montana

April 21, 2014

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks and partners have released a new brochure aimed specifically at landowners to help them tap into assistance programs for the conservation of sage grouse in Montana. The programs are voluntary and aimed at improving sagebrush-grasslands for livestock, sage grouse and other wildlife.

The partners are the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Bureau of Land Management, Intermountain West Joint Venture, and the Montana Association of Conservation Districts.

Featured programs include sustainable grazing programs, wildlife-friendly fences, conservation easements,  and restoration and enhancement of rangelands.

Hard copies are available and more information on the programs are available at  Montana state and local offices of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, NRCS and BLM.
