Annual Meetings Scheduled for FWP Conservation Easements in Haskill, Trumbull Creeks

Staff from FWP, Stoltze & City of Whitefish to meet Dec. 10

 

Kalispell, MT — The public is invited to attend liaison team meetings between Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, F. H. Stoltze Land and Lumber Co., and the City of Whitefish for the Haskill Creek and Trumbull Creek conservation easements.

Both meetings will take place in Whitefish at the City Council Chambers (2nd floor) at 418 East 2nd Street.

The meeting for the Trumbull Creek conservation easement is scheduled for 4:30–5:30 p.m., Dec. 10, 2018. The Trumbull Creek conservation easement spans 7,150 acres northwest of Columbia Falls.

The meeting for the Haskill Creek conservation easement is scheduled for 5:30–6:30 p.m., Dec. 10, 2018. The Haskill Creek conservation easement spans 3,020 acres north of Whitefish.

Liaison team meetings are held annually and provide a forum for discussion of any issues that may arise with respect to public use, land use, access issues, conditions, or other unanticipated issues related to the conservation easement lands.

Conservation easements are a core focus of FWP’s Habitat Montana program. These easements allow landowners to gain value for voluntarily keeping their property undeveloped for future generations. Each conservation easement is unique to the property and landowner and is engineered to retain the conservation value of the land. FWP manages 66 conservation easements across the state, protecting more than 440,000 acres. For more information, visit http://fwp.mt.gov/fishAndWildlife/habitat/wildlife/programs.
