Elkhorn Working Group

Elkhorn Vegetation Study

  • In the Elkhorn Mountains of Montana, we are working with agencies and private landowners to resolve conflicts between vegetation usage by domestic livestock and wildlife.  
  • The Elkhorn Working Group (EWG) is a cooperative effort of working ranchers, sports enthusiasts, conservationists, local governments, and agencies whose charge is to provide management recommendations on elk/livestock strategies within the Elkhorn Cooperative Management Area (ECMA).  
  • ERG is conducting a two-year field investigation and review of literature to report any findings of, and write management recommendations to minimize use conflict and optimize cattle use and elk habitat.
