North Sunday Creek Conservation Easement Draft Environmental Assessment


Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for a proposal to acquire a conservation easement on 14,300 deeded acres located northwest of Miles City in Custer and Rosebud Counties, Montana. This proposal is known as the North Sunday Creek Conservation Easement. Conservation easements are partnerships between FWP and willing private landowners to conserve wildlife habitats and provide public recreational access. The landowner receives financial compensation in exchange for adopting the conservation and public access covenants of the easement while continuing to operate their agricultural operation. The overall intent of the project is to conserve and enhance wildlife habitat and provide public access to the land in perpetuity while maintaining traditional agricultural land uses. FWP will hold a public hearing in Miles City on Wednesday, August 29th at 6:30 p.m. at the FWP Region 7 Headquarters to discuss the proposed conservation easement. A public comment period will begin August 10, 2018 and written comments will be accepted until September 9, 2018.
