The Bobcat Company, in partnership with Rick and Julie Kreuter, gave Keith Fortin of Whitehall, Montana the ultimate landscaping transformation.
Bobcat and the co-hosts of the television show, “Beyond the Hunt” on the Outdoor Channel, selected Fortin as this year’s winner of the 2014 Create & Conserve contest.
The team visited his property to help re-establish native plants species, encourage new growth and develop the land for a sustainable future.
For more than a week, Fortin’s land, which is just east of the continental divide, was transformed through a variety of Bobcat equipment.
The team installed 1,800 feet of irrigation to water the plot of land, as well as dug a pond adjacent to the plot and removed dead trees for firewood.
Entrants of the contest were asked to describe their ideal land transformation project that supports conservation.
