Upcoming IBMP Meetings for 2018

The IBMP Partners set aside the following dates for their meetings in 2018. Meetings are generally from 8 AM to 5 PM over a single day. Confirmed dates and locations, as well as draft agendas, will be posted well in advance.

STAY TUNED--all dates & locations are tentative!
  • March 1, 2018 -- Late winter field trip to the Upper Gallatin and Taylor Fork drainages
    ** AGENDA MODIFIED ON 2/27! Click for latest DRAFT field trip agenda (version 2/27/18). Note that the field trip includes time outside, plus the real potential for a) cold winter weather and b) the need for a 4wd vehicle to drive up the Taylor Fork.
    ** The agenda for the day is subject to change or cancellation -- please keep checking here for updates! We recognize the possibility for a winter storm to make conditions hazardous. We seek everyone's safety first and foremost so note the potential for late cancellation of the field trip, pending weather conditions. Any update to field trip status can be found here on this web page.
    ** Please car pool! We are encouraging car pooling as we know we will be limited with parking a) at the Sage Creek trailhead, b) at the 9 Quarter Circle Ranch up the Taylor Fork, and c) at the 320 Ranch. Thanks.
    ** Please RSVP your intention to attend by email to meeting facilitator Scott Bischke (scott@emountainworks.com). It will be very helpful to have an advance idea of how many people to expect.
    ** Great thanks to John Richardson and the 320 Ranch for hosting the afternoon portion of the field trip.
