What is Open Fields?
Montana has lost a significant amount of CRP in recent years, and more is scheduled to expire in the near future. Open Fields works with landowners to conserve CRP and associated quality habitats that provide important cover for Montana’s game birds.
Open Fields is made possible through a grant received by the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Voluntary Public Access - Habitat Incentive Program. This grant helps landowners keep some land in CRP and expands hunting access for game bird hunters.
