Vegetation Drought Response Index
A VegDRI workshop hosted by the Fort Peck Tribes was held at the Fort Peck Community College in Wolf Point, MT, on March 12, 2008. The workshop was intended to introduce local agricultural producers, tribal natural resource managers, and governmental agency representatives to the VegDRI tools and products. Feedback was also collected from the group of 38 participants regarding the general utility of VegDRI and the specific informational product needs for their respective interests. Carl Four Star, the water resources administrator for the Fort Peck Reservation, also presented the current drought planning and mitigation activities on the tribal lands and discussed how a tool such as VegDRI would be useful for these activities.
