Law Students Visit Blackfoot Valley

Students at the Blackfoot ValleyEnvironmental law students had the opportunity to see landscape scale and community-based conservation in the Blackfoot Valley on Tuesday October 6, 2015. The Public Land and Resources Law class and Prof. Vicky Dreitz’s Habitat Conservation and Management class, from the College Of Forestry and Conservation, met with Jim Stone from the Blackfoot Challenge and Greg Neudecker from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The groups toured some of the projects that the Blackfoot Challenge has implemented with help from Partnerships for Fish and Wildlife, like restoration of trumpeter swans in the Valley and practical solutions like fencing the transfer station to keep grizzly bears out of trouble and citizens in the community safe.
