Dry Cottonwood Creek Ranch

10802 Eastside Rd, Deer Lodge Montana 59722

A project of the Clark Fork Coalition, the Coalition and its partners purchased Dry Cottonwood Creek Ranch in 2005 to establish a learning site in one of the most important restoration areas of the watershed. Our goal is to share information about the ongoing mine waste cleanup and demonstrate to our neighbors how the cleanup activities pose challenges and benefits to a working cow-calf operation.

At Dry Cottonwood Creek Ranch, our ranch manager is not only trying to turn a profit in a hardscrabble industry, but are also looking to implement projects that increase irrigation efficiency, improve range and riparian health, and reduce energy costs and water use.
