Five Valleys Land Trust, based in Missoula and working in southwest Montana, monitors nearly 81,000 acres of conserved land every year. Five Valleys recently gave a shout out to the monitoring process and stewardship staff with this Facebook post:
Conservation easement monitoring season is one of our favorite times of year. While stewarding the 80,777 acres under our care, we get to connect with our many conservation easement landowners and enjoy in incredible summer scenery like this. Montana truly is the Last Best Place.
Monitoring and stewarding conservation easements is an important part of private land conservation and a land trust’s commitment to landowners.
