General info

This 98-acre facility is operated by the Parks Division of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks to preserve the black-tailed prairie dog ecosystem for the public’s educational and viewing enjoyment. Protection of this prairie dog town is due to the efforts of Edward Boehm of Livingston, Montana, who spearheaded the efforts to save it as the Interstate Highway was being built.
