Central Montana Grassland Field Tour
August 13 @ 12:00 am - August 15 @ 12:00 am MDT
The Northern Great Plains Joint Venture and the Winnett ACES are sponsoring a field tour 13-15 August in Musselshell and Petroleum Counties, and we would like to request your participation. This effort will be aimed at sharing how ranching operations in central Montana are working in partnership to integrate grassland conservation, soil health, and wildlife conservation into their business models. We will also host a community event at the Flatwillow Community Hall, and a Panel Discussion and Workshop on the final morning, in Billings, to discuss those local, state and national policies that are working best for the ranching community, and where there is room for improvement.
The event is broken into three parts: on the 13th, there will be an open meeting of the Musselshell Watershed Coalition in Roundup. Our field tour and evening social will be all day on Wednesday the 14th, followed by a morning workshop at the Double Tree in Billings on the morning of the 15th. I have attached a copy of the current agenda for the event. We will be sending reminders; we hope to have RSVP responses from potential attendees over the month or so.
We are inviting our Montana Congressional contingent, MT State Legislators, and a variety of agency and conservation organizations from across central and southeastern Montana, in addition to members of the local ranching community. If you think you might be interested in attending, please save the date. You can contact Daniel Casey, Northern Great Plains Joint Venture Coordinator with any questions or concerns, 406-702-1944.
