Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) proposes to acquire approximately 20.72-acres of land in Fergus County, Montana for $188,000. The purpose of the proposed acquisition is to provide additional public angler access to Big Springs Creek, allow the department to pursue future stream restoration projects, and provide an opportunity for expansion of the Lewistown City Trail network. The proposed property is located in Township 15 North, Range 18 East, section 9 of Fergus County immediately to the south and east of the Carroll Trail FAS, and NW of the Lewistown Waste Water Treatment Plant. It encompasses approximately one mile of creek frontage. This Environmental Assessment (EA) addresses only the proposed acquisition, any site developments or stream restoration efforts will require subsequent environmental assessments.
