RMEF, FWP to Host to Montana Land Project Celebration

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will host a celebration and dedication of the Madison-Wall Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA) addition on Saturday, July 9, 2016. It will take place at the WMA in the Madison Valley approximately 24 miles south of Ennis.

Activities begin with a 9 a.m. volunteer fence removal project followed by burgers and refreshments (please RSVP) at noon. The dedication ceremony will begin at 1 p,m.

RMEF acquired 631 acres of grassy rangeland immediately adjacent to the WMA in late 2014. The entire southern edge of the property borders the existing WMA while the eastern edge borders Bureau of Land Management land that runs clear to the Madison River. RMEF conveyed the property to FWP in 2016 which enlarged the overall acreage of the WMA by approximately ten percent.
