Bridger Plant Materials Center Annual Report
January 17, 2017
SWCDM was originally formed by MACD in order to purchase the Bridger Plant Materials Center. Co-owner by Montana and Wyoming’s Conservation Districts, it is one of 25 centers nationwide using plants to solve natural resource problems. These problems include soil erosion and degradation, water quality deterioration, invasive species, native habitat disturbance, mining and logging impacts, wildlife habitat loss, wetlands damage, and other conservation issues.
This week, the center released their annual report, highlighting the research and outreach work they’ve done over the past year. That work currently emphasizes studying rangeland health, cover crops and soil health, pollinator & wildlife friendly plantings, and more.
