10/28/2010Acquisitions, Trades & Leases
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) Region 2 proposes to purchase via fee title the 180-acre, four-parcel, Milltown Park property from The Nature Conservancy (TNC), located near the town of Bonner in Missoula County, Montana. This initial step calls for the acquisition of the TNC four parcels near Bonner, the Blackfoot River, and the old Milltown Dam overlook by FWP. These TNC parcels are in addition to the 450+ acres of NorthWestern Energy land that are scheduled to come to FWP as the core of the Milltown State Park and would enhance the overall plans for the park. A public meeting will be held on November 10th from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Bonner School Library. Comments must be received by FWP no later than 5:00 p.m. on November 26, 2010.
