Hereford cow with her new calf with rail fence in background
Grant-Kohrs Ranch calves today in May and early June.  This is similar to what cows would have done when left to roam freely during the Open Range Cattle Era.  Herefords, like this cow and calf, were first brought to Montana territory by Conrad Kohrs in 1868.

Phased Reopening Continues

The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis. To protect the health of those who live, work, and visit America’s national parks, face masks are required in all NPS buildings and facilities. Masks are also required on NPS-managed lands when physical distancing cannot be maintained, including narrow or busy trails, overlooks, and historic homes. Based on guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities, access to the park, continues as follows:

Historic Buildings for self-guided tours
Park Trails
Visitor Center
Ranger Programs

Ranch House

While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased, and services may be limited. When recreating, please follow local area health orders, practice Leave No Trace principles, and avoid crowding and high-risk outdoor activities.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
