NRCS Salutes Oliver Conservation Easement Near Bozeman

The NRCS recently tipped its cap to the Oliver family and Gallatin Valley Land Trust for completion of a 529-acre conservation easement on the Oliver farm in the Gooch Hill Area near Bozeman. From the Montana NRCS website: “As the Bozeman area continues to grow, GVLT is partnering with families in the Gooch Hill area who are using voluntary conservation easements to protect large blocks of land, ensuring viability for traditional family farming operations far into the future.
