NRCS and other conservation organizations offer different easement options that agricultural landowners can use to protect and/or restore wetlands, wildlife habitat, and agricultural resources. Workshop speakers will explain different easement options and how those can be tailored to meet the long-term conservation goals of landowners.

“The goal for these workshops is to give landowners access to information that could benefit their operations, either now or even in the future,” said Lisa Coverdale, NRCS state conservationist for Montana. “We want to arm producers with as much information as possible, giving them one more conservation tool to meet varied resource needs.”

If you have questions about the workshops, contact Abby Dresser at 406-544-6445 or For the lunch provided at the Roundup workshop, please RSVP to Donna Pedrazzi at Lower Musselshell Conservation District, or 406-323-2103.
