Land Board Gives Bad Rock Canyon Project Unanimous Approval

Great news…the Montana Land Board just unanimously approved the Bad Rock Canyon conservation project, which creates permanent public access on 772 acres of former Columbia Falls Aluminum Company lands near Columbia Falls. Thank you CFAC, Flathead Land Trust, MTFWP, and everyone who supported this project. The project was supported by Flathead County Commission, local Realtors, local chamber of commerce, City of Columbia Falls and much more. The Bad Rock Canyon WMA will be a major economic asset to Columbia Falls. THANK YOU to the land board!
