The Grizzly Corridor Model: An Adaptive Management Approach

We can reduce wildfire risks and protect communities while supporting grizzly bears. Our new video with Evergreen Magazine: The Evergreen Foundation

Wildlife managers in NW Montana are working to increase local grizzly bear populations at a time when large swaths of forests are at high risk of wildfires, insects and disease. Unfortunately, efforts to improve forest health and resiliency on the Kootenai National Forest continue to be stymied by lawsuits over alleged impacts to the species. This video highlights an innovative project on nearby private land aimed at thinning fire-prone forests, while providing a travel corridor for grizzlies moving up and down the Bull River Valley. This approach shows it’s possible meet the needs of this species while protecting our communities and forests from devastating fires.


Mining: It’s the one industry that supports all the rest. From agriculture, outdoor recreation, and healthcare, to energy, technology, and national defense, mined minerals make them all possible!



The Future of Mining: College can be a debt sentence for graduates unable to find high-paying employment. But as demand for mined minerals grows to keep up with the technologies of our modern world, so too does the demand for skilled laborers, engineers, and many others needed in tomorrow’s mining industry.



Thankful for Mining: We’re thankful for mining! Not only does it provide the material for nearly everything we use and rely on everyday, it gives Montanans the opportunity to make a good living without leaving the state.
