Landowner Larry Brown has been working with U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) District Conservationist John Wagoner (cowboy hat) to create a site-specific conservation plan that includes a pollinator habitat enhancement plan to address the improvement, restoration, enhancement, or expansion of flower-rich habitat that supports native and/or managed pollinators with the use of tree/shrub establishment and fence practices at his property just south of Ennis, Montana, on August 29, 2019.
Mr. Brown saw a local newspaper announcement that informed him how USDA could help. USDA Photo by Lance Cheung.
