FWP Announces Spotted Dog WMA Workgroup Members

Councils & Committees News - Region 2

Fri May 10 15:36:00 MDT 2013

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) has announced its selection of 18 area residents to serve on a workgroup for the Spotted Dog Wildlife Management Area (WMA), near Deer Lodge.

The Spotted Dog WMA Workgroup (SDWG) will promote communication and understanding between FWP and the local community regarding FWP’s management of the Spotted Dog WMA.

Fifty-two people replied to FWP’s advertisement for interest in serving on the SDWG. A committee of FWP Deer Lodge-area personnel and regional staff narrowed the list to a group representing neighboring ranchers; other local interests; hunters, anglers and other recreational users of Spotted Dog WMA; educators and other community leaders, according to Vivaca Crowser, FWP Communication and Education Manager for Region 2.

“We really appreciate that so many people want to help, and it was hard to whittle the applications down to a workably sized committee,” Crowser said.
The first meeting of the SDWG is planned for Wednesday, May 22, 6:30pm, at the Pen Convention Center (925 Main Street) in Deer Lodge.
