Deputy Refuge Manager Cortez Rohr delivers bags of whitebark pine cones to a member of the Montana DNRC Tree Seedling Nursery in Missoula, MT that he and technicians collected from trees at 8,700' in the mountains of SW Montana. The DNRC nursery in Missoula is standing up a whitebark pine seedling propagation program that currently only exists in Coeur d'Alene, ID. This program will be only the second of its kind and these are the first and currently only whitebark pine seeds the nursery is working with. In two years, the Refuge will have whitebark pine seedlings to plant on its high elevation mountain boundary. Photo by Cortez Rohr/USFWS.
