At the recent Montana Bird Conservation Partnership meeting in Lewistown, September 14-15, twenty-five of us journeyed to the Judith Gap Wind Energy Facility, owned and operated by Invenergy, a Chicago-based company.  John Bacon, on-site manager, gave us a field tour and even let us look inside a wind tower!  John answered many questions about tower siting, energy output, transmission line capacity, longevity of wind farms, and much more. 

Oh, and we had a great meeting discussing research, monitoring, and conservation projects on the Yellowstone River and across Montana’s prairie & sagebrush landscapes.
