The Calf Creek Wildlife Management Area Use Study is a project designed to allow Corvallis High School students the opportunity to monitor elk wintering grounds for Montana's Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
Once a month, from December through March, sophomores count and record elk and deer signs along eight transects established by Mike Thompson, FWP, in 1995. These data can be used by FWP to determine the degree to which elk use the area. In 1998 an exclosure was established as a means of monitoring vegetation for the effects of grazing and weed management.
Sophomores at C.H.S. have prepared this website to the best of their ability as a summary of five years of data collection. They hope you will find it informative. If you have any suggestions or corrections, please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org..or email@example.com
