Stumptown Addition to Garrity Mtn WMA

Acquisitions, Trades & Leases

11/08/2019

FWP invites public review of its proposal to acquire approximately 600 acres of privately owned land as an addition to FWP’s adjoining 9,907-acre Garrity Mountain Wildlife Management Area (GMWMA). The acquisition parcel is located along the NE portion of GMWMA, 1.5 miles west of Anaconda in Deer Lodge County in west-central Montana. Called the Stumptown Addition, the parcel would provide critical winter range for elk and deer, an important spring calving area for elk, and summer range for bighorn sheep. The addition also includes 0.7 miles of Warm Springs Creek and its associated riparian area. The addition would support a diversity of game species and many nongame species. It would be managed for fish and wildlife habitat as well as to improve public recreational access and opportunities. The project is proposed to be funded by the Natural Resource Damage Program, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, FWP’s Habitat Montana Fund, and the Montana Fish and Wildlife Conservation Fund. FWP will hold a public hearing in Anaconda on November 19, 2019 (Tuesday) at 6:00 p.m. at the AOH Hall (321-323 East Commercial Street) to discuss the proposal, answer questions and take public comment
