Land Stewardship–Caring for your piece of heaven!
In 2017, the CD decided to run a series of articles in our newsletter The Explorer in regard to stewardship. Below you will find clickable links to those articles.
We work with large acreage landowners as well as small acreage landowners. All have similar concerns, it’s generally just a matter of scale. In 2017, we began collaborating with the Lewis & Clark County Weed District, the Lewis & Clark County Water Quality Protection District and the Helena NRCS Field Office on an outreach campaign to smaller acreage landowners. As part of that project, we created a document with some general resource information. You can view the presentation in PDF form.
In addition to these articles we have the following technical resource information:
- All things trees-Windbreaks, Wildlife Plantings, and Snow Fences
- Forestry Considerations
- Gardens, Rain Gardens and Xeriscaping
- Noxious Weeds
- Soil Testing
- Well Testing
- Steam Management Practices
An additional resource for landowners or organizations, there’s a website that has a lot of the different programs available outlined in one place! The Montana Conservation Menu is a website that shows the different grant and program organizations and the types of projects you can potentially receive funding for. We encourage you to check it out!
We are very active on Facebook where we share a wide range of information as it pertains to our environment. So please click the link to Facebook and give us a like for real time news!
