In 2018, the Park County Cooperative Weed Management Area Group (CWMA), working with American Rivers,
Yellowstone River Conservation District Council (YRCDC), Park County Environmental Council (PCEC), National
Wild Turkey Federation, and other partners, landowners and residents, removed Russian olive trees within 115
acres along the Yellowstone River near its confluence with Mission Creek in Park County, Montana. The process
of restoring the native plant and tree species to improve fish and wildlife habitat and the natural ecology of this
national treasure river, and educating and involving the landowners has begun. All participants cooperated and
the residents were brought closer together in the process.
