July 20, 2017 - AIS Inspection is critical in helping to prevent the introduction of invasive mussels, however boats could still slip by and launch. Read the Seeley Swan Pathfinder article for a view on what would it take to reach the "gold standard?" Additional Pathfinder articles on AIS can also be read by typing "mussel" or "CRC" into the Pathfinder search box (near the top, right).  The state's AIS information resource is Montana's Mussel Response. Be sure to check it out.

The last Pure Montana Tales - Moose event

17crc_pmt_moose8553.jpg

FWP research biologist, Nick DeCesare shared information and data gathered as part of a moose population study he’s leading. Currently he is halfway through a ten year study of moose in three areas of the state. The information included factors that influence the numbers of moose in those areas including predators, parasites, and habitat. The study is also looking at effective methods for monitoring the populations since moose are harder to find using aerial observations. Details about the research can be found by going to the FWP Moose Populations & Monitoring page.

Research about other animals can be found
at the FWP Wildlife Research page.
