GVLT Announces Bear Canyon Project

      Gallatin Valley Land Trust officially launched its Bear Canyon Trail and Conservation Project, which when completed will conserve wildlife habitat and create a new trailhead to access 6,500 acres of public land. A centerpiece of the project is the purchase of 18 acres of private land for GVLT to own and manage to help balance wildlife conservation and outdoor recreation in the area.

     GVLT’s short video does a good job illustrating the value of the project to area residents, and is also an effective fundraising medium for the project.

     GVLT reports a community fundraising effort will start in the coming weeks and that GVLT will also be pursuing a partnership with DNRC to envision, plan and support balanced wildlife and recreation management on the Gallatin Front.
