Working Forest Project Finalized in Flathead County

The Lost Trail Conservation Easement provides recreational access while ensuring sustainable timber harvesting.

“This project truly meets a triple bottom line by providing outdoor access for the community, protecting wildlife habitat and ensuring timber harvesting can continue. It’s projects like this that demonstrate the power of conservation for communities across Montana. We’re grateful to the partnership and support of SPP and FWP in making this project a reality,” said Catherine Schmidt, a Trust for Public Land field representative.
