September 16th-30th Range Rider Update

Hopefully everyone’s staying warm out there! Temperatures have fallen and the Valley has already received a bit of snow, but most has melted. Participating ranches have begun moving cattle out of the Valley for the winter, but the Team will continue to track and ride through herds until everyone has left or until the weather evicts them!

Bison Decision in Montana

A decision notice was published recently for the Year-round Habitat for Yellowstone Bison Draft EA. The decision considered an adaptive change to the Interagency Bison Management Plan to allow bison to roam year-round, in Montana, on the perimeter of Yellowstone National Park. 

It's Giving Tuesday!!!

Happy First Day of December!
Giving Tuesday is finally here! Today we recognize the achievements we have made over the past year and strive to continue to accomplish our mission and goals.

Centennial Valley Range Rider Report July 26-August 8, 2015

In the past few weeks, cattle have been found dead due to poisoning, drowning, bloat, lightning strikes, and pneumonia. Constant bear activity has been occurring throughout areas with cattle, so riders have been monitoring carcasses for bear and wolf sign as well as moving carcasses when possible. If carcasses cannot be removed from areas with cattle, riders have made a daily presence through herds to prevent depredations.

Wolves have also been tracked frequently on the valley floor. One calf has been confirmed a wolf depredation on the Northside of the Valley.
