NATURAL HISTORY OF PRAIRIE WILDLIFE TOPIC AT MONTANA HISTORICAL SOCIETY
The history of a 320,000 acre grassland project in Phillips County is the topic of a talk co-sponsored by the Montana Historical Society and the Last Chance Audubon Society Thursday (March 10) at 6:30 p.m.
Brian Martin, director of Science and Stewardship and Northern Prairies Program for the Nature Conservancy will present the free public program “The Matador Grassbank.” Working with 16 area ranchers, the Nature Conservancy has developed a project to enhance habitat for a variety of native birds and wildlife.
The project also involves conducting fire and grazing research as well as a cooperative “wildlife friendly fence” project with the Alberta Conservation Association and the University of Montana.
