 Montana State University Extension will host a new series of meetings across the state geared toward comprehensive education on drought and its implications for Montana agriculture. The meetings are free and open to the public, no registration required.

The series will begin on April 26 with a meeting in Sidney, and sessions will also take place in Miles City, Havre, Lewistown and Dillon. The first meeting in Sidney will also be livestreamed via Webex. All in-person meetings will follow social distancing guidelines.
