Region 2 FWP proposes to renew a lease of pasture on its Blackfoot Clearwater Wildlife Management Area (BCWMA) located in Powell County. The proposed lease between FWP and the Two Creek Ranch (Lessee) would exchange grazing on 1,050 acres of primarily non-native pasture on the BCWMA, in exchange for implementation of a rest-rotation grazing system on 1,000 acres of privately managed native grasslands that provide important elk winter forage. Additionally, infrastructure maintenance and weed treatment on the BCWMA would be performed by the Lessee. The lease would be effective from May 15, 2013 to August 31, 2018.
FWP Region 2 Attn: Sharon Rose 3201 Spurgin Rd. Missoula, MT 59804
