Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site (GRKO), located just north of Deer Lodge, Montana, is a working cattle ranch commemorating the heritage of cowboys and stock growers in the history of the American West during the 19th and 20th centuries. The U.S. National Park Service (NPS) maintains the site according to its charter as a working ranch, with all the sights, sounds, and sensations associated with ranching. The cultural soundscape of the working ranch is considered essential to visitor enjoyment and understanding. Several anticipated changes in the neighboring community of Deer Lodge may affect the visitor experience at GRKO, including anticipated expansion of the local airport, increasing interstate highway traffic, and proposals to establish a rifle shooting range nearby. Because GRKO currently has no data characterizing the natural and cultural sounds of the park, this project was commissioned to monitor and evaluate the natural, cultural, and community sounds that comprise the ambient acoustic environment of the historic site over the period of one calendar year. The baseline acoustical data are analyzed and documented in a format suitable for management purposes by the NPS (the sponsor of this study), and by the NPS Natural Sounds Program Office.
