Conservation in Action

Teller Wildlife Refuge is made up of 1,300 acres of diverse habitats in the Bitterroot River, riparian corridor, including the river, streams, spring creeks, irrigation ditches, emergent and open water wetlands, uplands and agricultural fields. These resources are managed using a variety of methods to improve, restore, and maintain healthy land, water and wildlife habitat.

Management techniques include habitat enhancement, integrated weed management, wildlife-friendly agriculture, education and research, youth programs, active volunteer involvement, and landowner outreach. Teller also carefully manages access (public and private) for fishing and hunting activities to maintain healthy wildlife populations and a quality recreational experience for visitors.
