The Trust for Public Land: Kootenai Valleys Conservation Project

The Trust for Public Land worked out a deal with Stimson Lumber Company, the landowner, to permanently protect 28,000 acres near Troy and Lake Creek with a working forest conservation easement, which will allow for sustainable timber production while protecting water quality, habitat, recreation and other qualities essential to preserving the character of this unique landscape.
