This week in the Montana Conservationist:

  • Fergus CD is on the brink of completing a restoration effort on Big Spring Creek, on the section whose infamous straightening was the impetus for the 310 law.
  • A group in Butte has crowdsourced ideas for restoring the heavily polluted Silver Bow Creek, and the results are better than anyone was expecting
  • Larvae of invasive quagga mussels have been found for the first time inside Montana’s borders
  • Mike Mooney writes in to discuss the success of a partnership project managing weeds in the Bear Trap Wilderness in southwest Montana
  • A new Yellowstone non-profit has launched, and will serve as the park’s official partner
  • An aerial survey has identified over 100 million dead trees in California
  • Big data may help save aquatic species, as a project is launched to map the dna & location of all species in the nation
  • Northern Ag hits on the possible impacts of the incoming administration to food & ag sectors

All of that, and more! It’s the Montana Conservationist for the last day of November, 2016: TMC-2016-11-30
