The Montana Wildlife Habitat Improvement Program advisory council will meet at Montana WILD in Helena, 2668 Broadwater Ave., at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 5.

WHIP was established during the 2017 Legislature to set aside up to $2 million of federal Pittman-Robertson funding for the purpose of wildlife habitat restoration work in the form of noxious weed management. The program focuses on landscape-scale projects involving multiple landowners working together to solve noxious weed issues on priority habitats.

The council will meet to discuss program administration and make funding recommendations to FWP for grant applications submitted in December. Click here for the meeting agenda. A public comment period is scheduled for the afternoon session.
