About the event
Join us for another Pint Night supporting our community partner for the month of March, Montana Freshwater Partners. Montana Freshwater Partners is a Livingston-based, 501c3 nonprofit organization that works to preserve and restore streams and wetlands throughout the state of Montana, and we're so excited to host them here at MAP! We will be donating $.50 of every pint we sell from 4:00-8:00 pm on Monday nights during the month of March to Montana Freshwater Partners. Stop by to help support this awesome local organization. For this event, they will be focusing on their Beaver Conflict Resolution Program.
"Beavers are an integral component of healthy riparian ecosystems but are often considered a nuisance, due to their tendency to dam culverts and irrigation systems, or cut trees. Montana Freshwater Partners, Defenders of Wildlife (DOW), National Wildlife Federation (NWF), Sacajawea Audubon, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), and other partners - AKA the “Beaver Partnership'' - are embarking on a project to demonstrate non-lethal conflict resolution methods for beavers in southwest Montana. We will work with watershed groups, landowners, agency partners, and land trusts. Our goals are to build greater tolerance for beavers on our landscape, reduce beaver conflicts, and increase awareness through outreach and education. Specifically, we aim to: 1) provide a cost-share and technical assistance program for landowners/land managers who experience beaver-related conflicts; 2) train local partners on how to assess beaver conflict and address them with appropriate mitigation strategies; 3) develop strong working relationship with Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks (FWP), as a basis for a broader, longer-term beaver conflict resolution program linked to larger scale beaver restoration goals."
