Chapter History

The Montana Chapter of FNAWS was organized on May 9, 1992 and is affiliated with the national organization foundation for North American Wild Sheep (FNAWS). The founding members were all sheep enthusiasts from around the state of Montana and with a donation from the Montana Outfiters and Guides Association, the chapter had some funding and its beginnings.

In 2008, the National Foundation for North American Wild Sheep (FNAWS) changed and shortened their name to the Wild Sheep Foundation. To keep continuity and simplicity the Montana Chapter also changed its name in 2009 to Montana Wild Sheep Foundation (MWSF).

Chapter Structure

The Montana Chapter of Wild Sheep Foundation is a 501c(3) non-profit organization of an all volunteer membership. The chapter is governed by a board of directors made up of respected, conservation-minded indivduals of all walks of life, elected by the membership for three year terms. Officers are elected each year serving one year terms. They include a president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. Several project ecommittees are also part of this structure and are headed by appointed directors or members. The chapter also has an executive director.

The Montana Chapter shares the same Mission Statement as National WSF - to enhance and promote the state sheep herd populations and to safeguard against the decline and extinction of the species. Additionally, the chapter is committed to assist in funding various projects for professional management of these sheep populations throughout the state of Montana as well as sheep populations in all of North America. Essential projects involving conservation, habitat, management improvement and sheep population and propagation are actively funded by the MWSF.
