Join members of the Montana Chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers and staff from Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks for a work day at Canyon Creek WMA northwest of Helena.
At 3,333 acres, Canyon Creek WMA provides yearlong habitat for elk, deer and upland game birds, as well as seasonal habitat for moose, bear and migratory birds. A number of streams flow through the WMA that contain species such as brook, brown and rainbow trout, mottled sculpin and native Westslope cutthroat. Offering outstanding public hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing, hiking and horseback riding, Canyon Creek WMA is cherished by many local sportsmen. Additionally, the WMA opens even more public access to adjacent public lands managed by the US Forest Service, BLM and DNRC.
To improve the property, we'll be working on a myriad of tasks during a daylong volunteer effort, including the following:
Removing 'no trespassing' signage on 2 new additions
Hanging FWP signs on fences
Removing old barbed wire
Pulling invasive weeds
Folks are asked to meet at the Helena Area Resource Office at 8:30am on Saturday, August 24th.
