Join us Wednesday, July 25th at the Wise River Community Building for our favorite event of the year – the annual Wildlife Speaker Series: Big Hole event! It’s free & kids are welcome.
This year, we’ll be learning about Western Pearlshell Mussels (which live right here in the Big Hole) with Dave Stagliano, an aquatic biologist with the Montana Biological Survey. The event will include a potluck (6pm – main course from Beaverhead Meats), with Dave’s presentation starting at 7pm. Dave will also discuss the importance of water quality to sensitive species like native mussels. We can’t wait!
At BHWC’s June 2018 monthly meeting, Craig Fager and Vanna Boccadori, Wildlife Biologists with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, presented an update on big game populations and research from around the Big Hole area. The meeting also included a presentation by Travis Horton, Region 3 Fisheries Manager for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, about the cumulative effects of private ponds.
