Range News

January 2018 Newsletter

The first Centennial Valley Association Newsletter of 2018 is here! In it, you will find Centennial project updates, announcements, thank you's, and a lot of pictures. We have also begun something new in our Newsletter...A suggestion came to the CVA from a community member to include some of the history of the people and families of the Centennial Valley, since much of why we all get to work, recreate, or just enjoy the CV is because of the people of the past and present.

Thank you to Louise, the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, and National Geographic for your talents and partnership in bringing this together! 


2017 Final Range Rider Season Summary

The final Range Rider update is here! Learn about the cattle, the bears, the wolves, and other wildlife and how they all utilized the Centennial Valley during May-October 2017. Thank you to the participating ranchers, community, and donors who made this program possible this season. And a huge thank you to our Range Riding Team, Sarah, Marcie, and Steven! Without the three of you, we would not have made strides to accomplishing our mission and program goals. Thank you!

Thank You Wednesday

#Giving Tuesday evolves into Thank You Wednesday and, boy does the CVA have a lot to be thankful for! We are extremely grateful to the Centennial community and supporters, as the preliminary results show that over $8900 was raised for the Valley, which also means we met our match goal!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

October 15th-31st Range Rider Update

Most cattle have moved out of the Valley or are on their way out, so it has become much quieter in the Centennial. Sadly, the Team must wrap up their season in the Valley until next spring, but look forward to returning and seeing everyone’s smiling faces next year! Thank you to all participating ranches, and those of you who reported wildlife sightings. The Team could not have accomplished nearly as much as they did without you!

Here is the final wildlife tracking report for the 2017 season:
