Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks is asking for your input on the conservation and management of mountain lion populations in Montana.

They are hosting a public meeting on January 2nd at Fish, Wildlife & Parks Region 4, 4600 Giant Springs Road. The meeting will start at 7 p.m. FWP biologist Jay Kolbe will present information from the new draft Montana Mountain Lion Monitoring and Management Strategy, which is open for public comment until Jan. 11.
