The Shortgrass District serves the following Montana counties: Carter, Custer, Fallon, Garfield, Prairie, Powder River and Rosebud. This area covers approximately 24,500 square miles in the eastern part of the state. Three major rivers meander through this Badlands region. These seven counties have a population of approximately 29,500 (2012 U.S. Census estimation) people. Miles City is the business center of the region. The major industries in the area include mining, oil well services, ranching, farming and financial services. Among the population are an estimated 1,800 young men of scouting age. Our goal is to serve as many of our communities’ youth as possible while retaining the quality program that Montana scouting is known for.
