MONTANA, Garfield County CD and Petroleum County CD – The Montana Sage Grouse Habitat Conservation Program is seeking public comment on proposed uses of the Montana Sage Grouse Habitat Stewardship Fund to benefit sage grouse and conserve habitats.

The Garfield County Conservation District submitted an application for a combined restoration and 30-year term lease on 12,901 acres of the Burgess Ranch in Garfield County near Haxby Point. Restoration work entails reseeding cropland back to native rangeland.

The Petroleum County Conservation District submitted two applications for projects in central Montana. One proposal is for a 30-year term lease on 11,703 acres of the King Ranch. The other proposal is for a combination of restoration work (conifer removal and reseeding cropland to rangeland) and a 25-year term lease on about 5,625 acres of the Gran Prairie Ranch. Both projects are located west of Winnett and would conserve core habitat for the duration of the leases.

MONTANA, Teton County CD – How long does a honey bee live, which type of soil can easily form a ball, what animal did this fur come from or how do you measure antlers? Fourth graders from around Teton County had these and hundreds of other questions about the outdoors answered when they attended the annual 18th annual Creeks and Critters field day held May 2 in Choteau.

Students from Choteau, Fairfield, Power and Greenfield schools spent the spring day learning about how riparian health affects water, soil, wildlife, weeds, aquatic life, bees and plant life. Presenters used hands-on activities to teach the children rudimentary ecological concepts. Sponsored by the Teton Conservation District, Creeks and Critters field day brought 70 students to a variety of educational stations along Spring Creek and in the Choteau City Park.
