The Montana Conservationist June 29

This week in The Montana Conservationist, we celebrate Pollinator Week (okay, it was last week) with several articles about our buzzy friends.

  • We’ve got a wrap-up of our MACD / SWCDM Spring board meeting, which is basically a two-day idea pollination session
  • USDA has announced two key new measures to improve pollinator health
  • Ideas on five ways to help pollinators on working lands
  • Flathead County is going to be testing private wells for radiation
  • The Forest Service is taking action to streamline their special use permits (helpful for those of you who take school groups into the woods)
  • Christina Herron-Sweet chimes in on her research investigating whether spotted knapweed is helpful or harmful for pollinators
  • And last but not least, we introduce you to Samantha Tappenbeck, our new Area Resource Specialist for Western Montana.

All of this and a summertime buzz in this week’s The Montana Conservtionist: TMC 2016-06-29
