Sponsored by the Montana Forest Council, the Montana Logging Association and the Montana DNRC, these one-day workshops will improve your knowledge of Montana’s Forestry Best Management Practices and our Streamside Management Zone Law & Rules. 

  This year will have a special focus on  “PULASKI BMP’S”—those issues that you see when you are driving in and out of a job—those little things that can become BIG things, if not addressed.  That Pulaski may be the key to keeping your jobs working!  Local DNRC Service Foresters will be helping with this workshop so it is also an opportunity to meet these folks and get to know them!   This will be a great class for Contractors, crews and trucks!
