Today, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) announced its publication of the final Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge and UL Bend National Wildlife Refuge.
“This conservation plan will guide the long-term management for what we consider one of the crown jewels of the National Wildlife Refuge System,” said Steve Guertin, Director of the Service’s Mountain-Prairie Region. “Our goal is to preserve the integrity and beauty of the refuge which is home to the native prairies, the high cliffs of the Missouri Breaks, and the colorful badlands captured by the famous Montana cowboy artist Charlie Russell for whom the refuge was named.”
