Lewis Knob Fence Pull and Habitat Restoration

Join Montana BHA on May 28th for a 2-for-1 stewardship opportunity! As part of their Open Lands Policy, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) allows for responsible recreational use of its private forest lands in Montana FWP’s Region 2, including hunting. Near the Blackfoot-Clearwater Wildlife Management Area, a wintering ground for deer and elk, we'll help remove unnecessary and harmful fencing to improve wildlife movement and restore migration corridors.  Additionally, to help ensure these private lands continue to be publicly accessible, we’ll work with TNC to restore habitat by deconstructing illegally created OHV trails. OHV use on these private lands is ‘strictly limited to open, established roads’ only. The area is steeped in Montana history. Nearby Lewis Knob is named after Meriwether Lewis who climbed the knob while passing through on the famous Lewis and Clark expedition, long before OHVs and fences made their mark on the landscape.

Help us lend a hand in returning the landscape to the way it was while improving the habitat for critters we like to chase in the process. Volunteers will need gloves, safety or sunglasses and small packs with water and snacks. BHA will provide a lunch and refreshments after the work is complete. We hope you can join us!
