Wildlife Lecture Series
The NWW Annual “Celebrate Wildlife” Lecture Series began in 2007 and has been a success ever since. Learn more about our lectures on our Events page here. 

Bear Aware
As part of its ongoing efforts to reduce human/bear conflicts, Ninemile Wildlife Workgroup secured a grant to cover much of our area with bear resistant garbage cans. You can read the details of this project here.  See also Bear Aware.

Newsletters
Our semi-annual newsletter is mailed to all NWW members and residents of the greater Ninemile-Sixmile area every spring and fall.  These newsletters introduce our group to local communities while providing tips on living with wildlife, informing residents about ongoing projects and upcoming events, and providing basic information about wildlife.

Adopt a Highway Program
Members of the Ninemile Wildlife Workgroup maintain a 2 mile stretch of Hwy. 10 west of the old railroad bridge. We pick up trash along our stretch of highway frequently.

Nine Mile/Remount Weed Management Area
The Nine Mile/Remount Weed Management Area was created in the 1990's and has been successful in helping local landowners manage their weeds through cooperative grants since then. A bit more recently, the group received Noxious Weed Trust Grants in 2011 and in 2013. In 2015, Lindsey Bona, from the Missoula County Weed District, and Pat Sweeney, weed board member, made a presentation to the state wide committee in Helena. They didn't get the full amount they were seeking, but did manage to get $27,000 to help combat noxious weeds in our valley. This will help to keep our habitat for livestock and wildlife healthy and productive and ultimately benefit us all. If you'd like to learn more about the what the weed district does, learn a few things about weeds, or perhaps view last year's annual report, you can visit their website. This letter shows how the Ninemile Wildlife Workgroup works with and supports the Weed Management Area.
