The NRMG continues to work with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, The Montana Natural Heritage Program, the Bureau of Land Management, the United States Forest Service, and other state and federal agencies as WNS continues to advance. Read more about it by clicking on the image at the bottom.

“A big THANK YOU to Zach who took time away from family and work to help. And to the Grotto overall for their continued support.”

My state of residence has in 2020 found the first known WNS entry.
Collected outside and it may have come out of Canada. None of
my present NRMG activities enter a known roost of bats. I respect
all instruction issued to protect bats from my recreational caving.
I’ve had previous pleasure of hip deep wade in semi-liquid guano
and if you’re caving no bat can address cavers better than that.
