Do you have property on a degraded stream bank, or simply love recreating on Montana’s beautiful rivers? Join us on Earth Day for a fun-filled day learning about riparian zones and river stewardship, and take part in a hands-on planting of native species. Participants will assist in the early stages of a restoration planting along the Swan River, where a full riparian restoration project is just beginning!
This is a FREE event with lunch and transportation to/from the planting site provided.

The Lake County Conservation District with technical assistance from NRCS has created a Lake County Pollinator Seed Mix! Sign up for the initiative at our office or call to start increasing pollinator habitat throughout the county today!

 A WIN FOR THE BEES!!! (and all pollinating insects and mammals)

Our Statewide Pollinator Resolution Passed!!!

The Lake County Conservation District recently traveled to Sidney, MT November 14-18th to attend a statewide Montana Association of Conservation Districts Annual Convention. At convention we sponsored a  Statewide Pollinator Resolution asking Conservation Districts from around the state to put pollinator projects into their annual work plans. Pollinator projects can be large or small and involve monitoring insect populations, habitat restoration in the form of flower patch establishment, and outreach and education about the importance of native and introduced bee species.
