Every private property in the Blackfoot watershed is unique, with its own characteristics, history, and resource concerns. Similarly, every landowner is unique, with their own distinct values, objectives, and capacity to manage the land. Whether your goal is to make a living or simply enjoy beauty and solitude, there are many common threads for managing and enhancing the natural resources on your property. The Land Steward will meet you at your coffee table or in the field to take a holistic look at your property and discuss your goals and how to achieve them. Example projects include controlling noxious weeds while conserving native bunchgrasses, stewarding your forest to reduce wildfire risk while providing wildlife habitat, and designing a livestock grazing plan to maximize soil and stream health. By connecting individual improvements across neighbors, the Land Stewardship program realizes watershed-wide benefits. Contact our Land Steward.
