When: Friday, July 19, 2019
Where: French Gulch and Moose Creek-Mt. Haggin Wildlife Management Area
Time: 10:00am – 4:00pm (this is just an estimate – stay as long as you like)
Directions: Meet at the Moose Creek turnoff, located on Highway 569 (between Wise River and Anaconda), ~4 miles SW of Sugar Loaf Lodge.
Why: During the construction of the French Gulch and Moose Creek Restoration projects (completed in 2017), plastic fencing was placed around hundreds of freshly planted shrubs and trees to protect the young plants from deer, elk, and moose browse during plant establishment.
