Project Description

The Service and Tribal and other partners will install approximately 3 miles of new, wildlife-friendly fence, adding approximately 1,560 acres of currently idle pasture to Fort Belknap's Buffalo Program pasture. Funding will also allow the partners to begin project planning and design, as well as cultural resources consultation, for a livestock water system to supply another additional 5,500-acre range unit with useable water and allow its incorporation into the overall grazing system the partnership is developing for the Belknap’s buffalo herd.
