Prickly Pear Land Trust Helps Lead East Helena Public Access Project

Prickly Pear Land Trust is a key project partner in the East Helena Greenway project, The project concept includes public trails, cleaner water, community conservation and much more. From the PPLT website: In 2010, Prickly Pear Land Trust began working with the community of East Helena and federal, state, and local authorities to plan this recreational trail system and maximize its benefits and connections for East Helena. With the transfer of 323 acres to PPLT in late 2020, this long-term project began in earnest, and the proposed trail will create pedestrian and bike-safe connections between schools, town and Prickly Pear Creek, before heading upstream and connecting to Montana City’s community trails.
