Landowners: Ranching with Endangered Species
March 13, 2019
Join the Charles M. Russel National Wildlife Refuge Community Working Group on Thursday, March 21, at the McCone County Fairgrounds in Circle from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., for a discussion on conservation policies and how to work with them to support your family ranch or farm.
Award winning guest speaker Russel Davis, a rancher from Colorado, will discuss his experiences with the Endangered Species Act and present ways that ranchers can work to help wildlife while still supporting their production operations. Davis is the winner of the Sand County Foundation’s Leopold Conservation Award for conservation efforts on his family ranch near Ordway, Colo. The Wineinger-Davis Ranch supports a diversity of habitats and wildlife species including the Mountain Plover due to Mr. Davis’ conservation efforts.
The meeting will also be an opportunity to hear reports by the CMR on their Comprehensive Conservation Plan, the RSA Conservation Committee, the Rangeland Monitoring Group, and the Montana Rangelands Partnership. The meeting will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and to learn about conservation opportunities in your area.
