Garrity Mountain WMA Addition

Acquisitions, Trades & Leases

Tue Dec 18 16:44:33 MST 2018

FWP invites public review of its proposal to acquire fee title to a 154-acre land parcel, as an addition to FWP’s adjoining 9,635-acre Garrity Mountain Wildlife Management Area (WMA). The private parcel, currently owned by YT timber, is located 7 miles west of Anaconda in Deer Lodge County. The parcel is in an area identified in the Natural Resource Damage Programs’ (NRDP) 2012 Restoration Plan as a priority landscape for conservation actions. The WMA addition would protect a migration corridor for bighorn sheep and key habitat for bull trout and westslope cutthroat trout as well as preclude subdivision and development. It would be managed for fish and wildlife habitat as well as to improve public access and recreational opportunities. The project would be funded by NRDP, the Montana Fish and Wildlife Conservation Fund, and FWP’s Habitat Montana Fund. FWP will hold a public hearing in Anaconda on January 3, 2019 (Thursday) at 7:00 p.m. at the AOH Hall (106 Cherry Street) to discuss the proposal, answer questions and take public comment.
