Our community is pioneering unlikely alliances to maintain our ranching

heritage while building synergistic 

solutions for prairie conservation.  

We have worked tirelessly to improve communication and relationships  

with government agencies and 

conservation groups while protecting ranching traditions.

We have worked together since 2003

to resolve problems we and other

ranching families face.  Because both

our rural  communities and the

abundant wildlife of the area are sustained in large part by ranching,

our challenge is to create a vibrant, profitable and sustainable

future for this region. 


We are in the process of rebuilding our website to better convey our message and invite you to join us, wherever you are. Please send us your ideas or suggestions by using the Contact link on the upper right.

We are a group of ranching families in northern Montana working collectively

to promote the ecological, social and economic conditions that will sustain

the biodiversity and integrity of America’s northern mixed-grass prairie for present and future generations.

Ranchers Stewardship Alliance

We seek ways to turn the table so that conservation becomes an economic

engine for agriculture, and we imagine future generations wondering, “Did ranchers save the prairie birds, or did

birds save the prairie ranchers?”
