If you’re one of the many people who enjoy the outdoors and like to take advantage of the countless outdoor recreation opportunities in Montana, chances are you have visited a variety of public lands administered by different state and federal agencies.
It’s always a good idea to plan ahead, know where you’re going, and become familiar with what regulations and opportunities apply to different public and private lands you’ll visit.
There are still two open houses along the HiLine this fall that are designed to provide a one-stop-shopping opportunity for all of your hunting and other outdoor recreation questions. Agency representatives also can provide information about recreating on public lands and private lands that are enrolled in FWP's Block Management Program.
“While websites, brochures, maps and manuals are all helpful, sometimes it’s nice to just be able to talk with a real person and get immediate and accurate answers,” Bureau of Land Management Hi-Line District Manager Mark Albers said. “We’ll have representatives from BLM, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation standing by.”
The next open house will be at the BLM office in Malta on Oct. 15 and at the Havre BLM office on Oct. 19. Each of the sessions will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
For more information, call the BLM's Kathy Tribby at 406-654-5124 or FWP's Michael Nye at 406-228-3708.
