MLR, Raths Family Team Up on Sage Grouse Conservation

The Montana Land Reliance, the Raths family, and lead project partners the NRCS ALE Program and the Montana Sage Grouse Conservation Program, teamed up recently to conserve over 11,000 acres of ranch land and sage grouse habitat. MLR announced the closing of the project via social media, with a post that ended with, “We are so grateful to the Raths for their partnership, and proud to count them among our landowners!“ MLR has worked – and is working – extensively with the state’s sage grouse program on several sage grouse conservation efforts.
