The Montana Conservationist April 6

This week in The Montana Conservationist brings a lot of news, but very few jokes from your friendly TMC compiler.

First, the NRCS gets sensitive to allergens and is now excluding buckwheat from conservation plantings in or near wheat fields.

A statewide council convened by Governor Bullock has released an assessment of invasive species management in the state, to be followed by recommendations for improvement.

In Missoula, a judge ruled that the Forest Service must consider climate change in assessing whether wolverines merit listing on the endangered species list.

Wyoming makes our list twice this week, first for a Stanford study that found fracking chemicals in a town’s drinking water, and secondly because the Supreme Court has ruled on a long running law suit contending the state held back too much water on the Tongue River.

Then we’ve got an interesting article on the historic cooperation between preservation and conservation. Plus, meet our office assistant April West, the friendly face keeping us all in line.

That and more, as always, in this week’s edition of The Montana Conservationist.
