Montana State University Extension is currently offering a sale on its book “Range Plants of Montana.” The book acts as a color guide to identifying rangeland plants, and is designed to be a useful reference for ranchers, land management personnel, students and nature enthusiasts.

Jeff Mosley, MSU professor of range science and Extension range management specialist said, quote,

“Rangelands – open space for ranching and recreation, clean air, water and abundant wildlife - provide much of what makes Montana special.  The color photographs and non-technical language in Range Plants of Montana will help you discover the plants that inhabit our rangelands and enable you to more fully appreciate the beauty, diversity and complexity of these native ecosystems.

The 124-page, spiral bound book is on sale for $9.99 through August 30. “Range Plants of Montana” and many other publications can be ordered online or by calling the MSU Extension Distribution Center at (406) 994-3273.
