Four Reasons for Five Valleys

Five Valleys Land Trust's mission is to protect and preserve western Montana’s natural legacy. We believe that the character and communities of this region are rooted in its clean rivers, open lands, agricultural traditions and abundant wildlife. If you love western Montana like we do, help protect it by making a donation to Five Valleys Land Trust. 

We need your support to protect:

Agricultural Lands

"You have to remember: the land owns you. You never own the land. You're looking after the old ones that came before, and all their hard work, by keeping the land in an ag-based, wildlife-friendly conservation easement." - Joe Boyer, Five Valleys conservation easement landowner

Scenic Open Spaces

"Growing up in a city, I am so thankful our daughters get to grow up in a place that they can hike and bike out their back door, where they are able to see and understand our need for working farms and wild lands." - Amber Sherrill, President of the Five Valleys Board of Directors

River Corridors

"I'm confident the Lincoln Community River Park will be a gift that keeps on giving especially to those who must walk or bike to access the river. When I was a boy, I walked or biked to the river and to any and all streams near and flowing through Lincoln. Everyone should be so lucky." - Paul Roos, Five Valleys supporter and champion of the Lincoln Community River Park

Wildlife Habitat

"Looking back 50 to 100 years at the many changes made to our landscape makes one realize that much of what we love about living in western Montana could be lost by pressures of an expanding human population. Five Valleys makes it possible for concerned landowners to protect our rich biodiversity and agricultural resources now and for future generations."- Jim Brown, Five Valleys Land Trust and Five Valleys Audubon board member
