Project Descriptions:

FLINT CREEK PHASE 2: REVEGETATION AND RESTORATION PROJECT

This project is located in the Lower Flint Creek valley upstream of Hall. The purpose of this project is to improve stream and floodplain function and fish habitat through streambank restoration and revegetation. Funding came from the Montana Natural Resource Damage Program, the Fish, Wildlife & Parks Future Fisheries program, Montana Department of Environmental Quality, and nonprofit groups, including Trout Unlimited, the Trout and Salmon Foundation, and the Wild Turkey Federation. Tess Scanlon of Trout Unlimited will be showing us around the site and talking through all the work that was put into this project. 

 

UPPER WILLOW CREEK: HABITAT RESTORATION PROJECT

The main goals of this project were to increase ecosystem resiliency, and restore natural stream channel processes in Upper Willow Creek to benefit native fish populations and wildlife habitat. This project was a collaborative effort by the private landowner, Trout Unlimited, Montana Department of Environmental Quality, and Montana Natural Resource Damage Program. Tess Scanlon of Trout Unlimited will be giving a presentation and answering questions about this project. 

 

DRUMMOND KIWANIS RIVERFRONT PARK

Located 1/4 mile off Front street in Drummond, this 32 acre park owned by the Drummond Kiwanis Club provides Clark Fork River access, a walking trail, and excellent bird viewing opportunities. This park is the result of over a decade of planning by members of the Drummond Kiwanis Club. It was initially funded by a Natural Resource Damage Program grant and updated infrastructure is funded in part by money that comes from the Drummond Rodeo. Members of the Drummond Kiwanis club will be guiding us through the park.  

 

BOHRNSEN PROPERTY: THINNING PROJECT AND TIMBER SALE

Hans Bohrnsen worked with KLM Contracting to conduct a thinning project on his private property. Thinning is a great way to reduce wildfire risk and can also be effective in decreasing conifer encroachment on grass and rangelands. This thinning project also resulted in a timber sale. Bryan Lorengo from KLM Contracting will be leading a presentation about this project.
