FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                               April 20, 2006



 Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), Region One, has written a draft environmental assessment (EA) for Lone Pine State Park (T28N, R22W, S24) in Flathead County for the purpose of granting an easement on the existing tower access road to a telecommunications company for the purpose of accessing their existing tower near the park’s northwest boundary . In consideration for this easement, park managers would receive additional noxious weed treatment funds to be used at Lone Pine. The five-year easement would also result in additional site protection measures to prevent illegal off-road travel.

 The EA is out for public review until Wednesday, May 10, 2006.  Copies of the draft are available at FWP headquarters, 490 N Meridian, Kalispell; Montana State Library, 1515 E 6th Ave., Helena; the Flathead County Library, 247 First Ave. E, Kalispell; and the FWP web site at
