Montana Audubon Ranchers & Staff Featured in ACR Impact Report

Because ranchers value birds & biodiversity 

The 2023 Audubon Conservation Ranching Impact Report is here- and, as you scroll through the pages, you’ll see many familiar Montana Audubon names and faces, including:  

  • Christian Meny, Director of Conservation and head of the Conservation Ranching program for Montana Audubon 
    • “It’s like quilting, but with the land,” Meny says. “We want to stitch together areas that have been freshly grazed, areas that were grazed a month ago, and areas that haven’t been grazed all year. With this patchwork of habitat, we can benefit the biggest array of grassland bird species and other wildlife.”
  • Matt and Sarah Skoglund, North Bridger Bison 
    • The Skoglund family also made the front cover of the report!
    • “The bison on our ranch help build soil, improve the quality of the soil, increase the amount of water retained in the ground, increase the amount and diversity of the grasses, forbs, and wildflowers on the landscape—which helps birds, wildlife, and our bison—and helps reduce climate change through carbon storage in the soil,” Matt Skoglund says.
  • Jaimie Stoltzfuz, P Bar Ranch/Cowgirl Meat Co. 
    • “Confirmation through Audubon Conservation Ranching’s bird species counts has been very rewarding. We view diversity as confirmation that our management style has been positive,” Jaimie Stoltzfus says.
