What is Montana Range Days?

In 1977 Montana Range Days became the state’s premier rangelands education event.  Since its inception, over 7000 participants have taken part.  Every two years a new host community joins with statewide sponsors to make Montana Range Days happen by contributing time, materials, and financial support.

At Montana Range Days, youth and adults of all ages gather for three days to celebrate and learn more about our rangelands, including plant identification, soils, ecology, rangeland inventory, and management tools and techniques. Tours of local operations showcase  natural resource management.  Contests allow participants to test their knowledge and earn prizes and other awards including scholarships.
