Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), Region One, is seeking public comment for a proposal to buy about 70 acres of land on the North Shore of Flathead Lake, Flathead County, Montana, for the purpose of fish and wildlife habitat conservation.

A copy of the draft environmental assessment is attached for your review. The draft is out for a 3-week public review, with comments being accepted through July 17, 2009.
