Hoooooh, boy! TMC is chock full this week, readers!
We start off this week’s issue with the news that SWCDM has signed an agreement with the State of Montana and USDA to streamline and coordinate Sage Grouse conservation efforts on private lands in Montana. **It’s not really even a big deal. **Dusts shoulders off***. Then we’ve got a report on the increase in cover crops across the nation, and naturally, (pun intended) the increase in yields on farms using cover crops. Speaking of which, applications are now open for Montana administrator and supervisor of the year (who’s out there doing a great job promoting these cover crops, anyway?).
Then the Montana Standard takes us on a review of the bright blue plume of water seeping its way toward Silver Bow creek, which just happens to be wrapping up its own clean up efforts. And while we’re talking about flowing water, Lost Horse Creek reached the Bitterroot this summer for the first time since the 1930’s, thanks to Ward Ditch Irrigation District’s recent project.
That’s not all, but you’ll have to read it to get the rest! It’s the latest edition of The Montana Conservationist.
