Montana’s natural landscape offers so much more than majestic views. It’s a means to outdoor activities—such as hunting, fishing and hiking—that, for many, are a way of life. Understanding this, we have continued the land’s enrollment in the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ (FWP) Block Management Program, which helps our company manage hunting, fishing and other recreational activities and provide free public access to our private lands. Our enrollment in the program is voluntary with renewal required each year.
Conservation Plans and Permits
Boasting thick forests, clean air and clear, flowing water, our Montana timberlands are a haven for area wildlife. To protect these species, we are engaged in a variety of conservation projects, easements and an HCP. When we acquired our land, we assumed the terms of the Thompson-Fisher River Conservation Easement, which protects 142,000 acres from being sold for future development. We are also working with the Trust for Public Land to complete the ongoing Montana Great Outdoors Conservation Project and Lost Trail Conservation Area, both of which would protect crucial wildlife habitats and migration corridors. Learn more about our Native Fish HCP, which covers nearly 300,000 acres to protect habitats for several species of whitefish and trout.
