What Does This Beast Have To Do With Tax Returns?
This is a photo of one of the members of the Bitterroot's East Fork mountain sheep herd. The animals are often found on the roadways around Sula, and in a place designated as a "Watchable Wildlife" area.
Again this year, Montana's annual income tax form includes a check-off box to support the nongame funds such as Watchable Wildlife.
The Montana Department of Fish Wildlife and Parks also uses the money for small wildlife species such as birds, small animals, reptiles and amphibians.
The fund supports activities that encourage awareness of wildlife including monitoring and habitat improvement. Every $10 you donate is matched up to three times with federal dollars.
For information, look at "Fish and Wildlife" at the FWP website.
