Audubon Conservation Ranching got birdy this summer

As part of our Audubon Conservation Ranching (ACR) program, the Bird Conservation team has been working with ranchers and doing outreach across the state from Broadus to East Glacier! Needless to say we have been busy. Starting in June with a whirlwind of bird surveys, we then tabled at the Blackfeet Nation’s People’s Market in Glacier County, presented to a relatively new group, RanchMT, and finally had in-person visits with some of our National Audubon ACR staff partners. RanchMT started this year to provide education and resources to new ranchers. Just a few weeks ago, we attended a Ranching-For-Profit workshop organized by the Audubon Conservation Ranching Initiative, led by Ranch Management Consultants, way out in Broadus! These workshops, which we hope to host more of in the future, connects ranchers with resources for running a resilient, habitat-friendly, grass-fed operation.
