The Ninemile Wildlife Workgroup is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of volunteers and citizens concerned with maintaining wildlife movement through the regional Ninemile Wildlife Corridor – a critical wildlife linkage area connecting large blocks of intact habitat in the northern Rocky Mountains. Since our inception in March 2005, we have collaborated with county, state, and federal government agencies, non-governmental organizations, private businesses, and landowners to maintain critical wildlife movement opportunities through our valleys while increasing human safety. We do this through field research, educational outreach, community events, and conflict-prevention resources. Some of our ongoing projects include an annual wildlife lecture series and semi-annual newsletters that are distributed to NWW members and all residents of the greater Ninemile-Sixmile area.
We strive for connected landscapes and connected communities.
