Kootenai Forestlands Conservation Project Draft Environmental Assessment

05/30/2019

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) seeks public comment on a proposal to purchase a conservation easement to protect approximately 22,295 acres of highly productive timberland and important fisheries and wildlife habitat in northwestern Montana scattered around the City of Libby. The property is owned by the Stimson Lumber Company, one of the oldest continuously operating integrated wood products companies in the United States with roots dating back to the 1850s. This conservation project is a collaborative effort involving Stimson, The Trust for Public Land, and FWP. The proposed conservation easement, to be held by FWP, would allow Stimson to retain these timberlands, preclude development, protect important wildlife habitat and key landscape connectivity, and provide permanent public access and associated recreational opportunities. FWP has scheduled a public hearing June 12, 2019 at 6:00 pm in Libby at the Libby City Hall, Ponderosa Room, 952 E. Spruce Street, to provide interested organizations and private individuals an opportunity to ask questions about the proposed project and submit public comment.
