The Montana Conservationist August 16

Greetings, conservationists! This week in the newsletter:

  • A Montana rancher discovered an ancient mammoth fossil on his land
  • The Hamilton High School Envirothon team placed in the top ten at the recent international competition. Congrats, HHS!
  • The Ennis fish hatchery has recently constructed a wetlands to treat its wastewater
  • A new study suggests that artificial lights may deter nocturnal pollinators
  • For those suffering from this summer’s intense drought, there is a website that can help by calculating what aid might be available
  • After the Lodgepole fire, many Montanans have turned out to support those affected, with deliveries of hay and other assistance, which makes us very proud to be Montanans
  • In another form of drought assistance, the state has launched a new website to help keep track of harmful algae blooms
  • And we have a great story about how trust and cooperation have aided in the fight against noxious weeds in Sweet Grass county

All of that, and more, in this week’s edition of The Montana Conservationist: TMC 2017-08-15
