Help Protect Montana's Rocky Mountain Front

I saw this article on the Montana FWP's website and thought that I would post it here for others to read. The FWP is seeking comment on the proposed purchase of land along Montana's Rocky Mountain Front. I'm in favor of the FWP acquiring this land. The property abuts the "Sun River Wildlife Management Area", which provides winter range for one of the Nation's largest migratory elk herds. Montana's Rocky Mountain Front is a variable Serengeti, when it comes to wildlife, and is threatened by subdivision development and oil and gas leasing. Large blocks of undeveloped land along the Front provide excellent habitat, and important corridors for wild species, and help to improve the genetic diversity in one of the lower 48's last intact ecosystems.

Let the FWP know what you think.
