Five Valleys Celebrating 50 Years of Conservation

The organization that is now known as Five Valleys Land Trust started small, with a $100 grant in 1972 to work on a riverfront park concept. Five decades later, Five Valleys is celebrating its 50th anniversary with close to 100,000 acres conserved across ten counties as a western Montana leader in outdoor recreation projects and partnerships.

From a Five Valleys newsletter: We are humbled to be celebrating 50 amazing years of serving our western Montana community. Guided by our 2021-2024 Conservation Initiatives, we continue to deliver on our core work while seeking opportunities to innovate and collaborate in order to meet current and emergent needs throughout western Montana.

There is much to celebrate about our past five decades, and even more to embrace as we enter our next half-century. As 2022 unfolds we look forward to sharing the many ways in which you can join in to celebrate and support the lands you love. Stay tuned!

Congratulations to everyone at Five Valleys Land Trust, and to all who contributed to its ongoing accomplishments.
