MWF is Working Tirelessly to Ensure the Future of Public Access

As Montana’s oldest wildlife conservation organization, MWF has seen the conservation and hunting needs of Montana change over the last eight decades. But one thing that has not changed is the need for quality access opportunities. MWF is working tirelessly to ensure the future of public access, including working to support the completion of the Graveley-Warm Springs Conservation Easements near Garrison Montana.   

The Graveley-Warm Springs Conservation Easements will protect more than 8,200 acres of one of kind wildlife habitat.  The easements will also allow hunting access in perpetuity, giving hunters opportunities for elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, antelope, wolves, and upland birds. The property spans native grassland, wetlands, forested areas, and aspen groves that sits in the shadow of the Garnet Mountain Range and will provide improve wildlife habitat connectivity, something healthy wildlife desperately needs. As time progresses, projects, such as this, will become increasingly rare.  

MWF and its members have been actively engaged in ensuring the completion of this project. From writing letters to attending meetings to providing public comments, MWF has shown up on this project like no other conservation organization.
