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.
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?”
