From landscape to acre, Five Valleys is working to protect and respond to community needs across western Montana. By making a year-end donation, you will help us continue the work of conserving working lands and wildlife habitat, improving access to our beloved to open spaces, and bringing our community together around the shared value of conservation.
Whether you prefer to give a one-time donation, become a monthly recurring donor, or by making Five Valleys a beneficiary of your will or trust, there are so many ways to support the lands you love.
Since 1972, your support has helped us protect over 90,000 acres of our incredible western Montana landscape. This year, Five Valleys conserved over 10,500 acres of key wildlife habitat and working lands, from the Upper Clark Fork and Flint Creek Valleys to Potomac and the Ninemile, and included our largest conservation project to date: the Graveley Ranch project near Garrison.
We are working to provide new--and improved--places for our community to connect to the land, including new open space on the Bluebird-North Hills property and all abilities trails along Miller Creek on Mount Dean Stone and at the Rock Creek Confluence. In tandem, our Hands on the Land volunteering program helped to mobilize nearly 500 community members in support of conservation this past year.
Our commitment to the lands we protect is enduring. This includes over 185 private conservation easements, as well as the lands we own at the Rock Creek Confluence, Marshall Mountain, and Lincoln Community River Park, where we have engaged over 1,100 community members this year.
