Surveying roads in the Prospect Creek area.
Road Closure Monitoring
We will be driving and hiking in the Swan Mountains to verify road closures for wildlife and watershed security. This is an especially sensitive time of the year for our big-game species and soon-to-be hibernating bears. Many road closures are intended to provide security for these species at this time. Our data will be used by the USFS and Plum Creek Timber company to better understand how effective their road closures are in the Swan Valley.
