The Montana Wild Bison Restoration Coalition is available to present, at public meetings in Montana communities, on issues and opportunities for restoring wild, public bison, on the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge. We are seeking local sponsors for these presentations, especially in Missoula, Great Falls, Helena and Billings.

If you or your group would like to sponsor a local presentation, and handle local logistics and publicity, please contact Jim Bailey by email, or at (406) 539 – 1359 (e-mail preferred).

Dr. Jim Bailey, retired professor of wildlife biology and management at Colorado State University coordinates Coalition activities. He has authored American Plains Bison: Rewilding an Icon, published by Sweetgrass Books, Helena, MT. A biography of Dr. Bailey and more of his writings are available on his website at

In retirement, Jim has remained active with wildlife conservation issues, first in Santa Fe and now in Montana. Over the years, he has written or contributed to over 70 publications in wildlife biology and management – in peer-reviewed and other media.
