June 11th Meeting of the CMR NWR Community Working Group

Press Release

The Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge (CMR NWR) Community Working Group will meet on June 11th in Malta at the Phillips County Public Library, 10 South 4th Street E, from 10:00AM to 4:00PM. Join us for presentations on the impact of rangeland conversion to cropland on sage grouse populations and the effects of grazing management practices on sage grouse habitat. There will also be updates on the Montana Greater Sage Grouse Stewardship Act, and the Montana Sage Grouse Oversight Team (MSGOT). The CMR Community Working Group recently formed a sub-committee to be an information and educational clearing house for all conservation programs, initiatives, and incentives related to sage grouse, with the express purpose of helping to engage landowners and match them to the program that best fits their needs.

Lunch is available for $7.00. The public is encouraged to attend and provide input as the group seeks to influence the vitality and sustainability of the 6-county region surrounding the CMR NWR. For more information, call Rachel Frost 406-454-0056 or visit CM-Russell-NWR-Community-Working-Group on Facebook.
