Habitat Enhancement on Western Dakota Focal Landscape

North Dakota Outdoor Heritage Fund, Medora Grasslands Association, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the Mule Deer Foundation collectively contributed nearly $500,000 for a wildlife habitat enhancement project in the NWTF’s Little Missouri, Western Dakota Focal Landscape.
