Project Description:
The purpose and need for the proposed land acquisition would increase the amount of public lands available for recreational opportunities. Recreation use is increasing in this area due to the proximity to Missoula. This proposal would maintain the working lands with active Forestry and Fuels programs as well as continued grazing. The proposal would form a larger consolidated block of public land as the proposal is adjacent to existing BLM managed lands. The efficiency and effectiveness of all resource management on BLM land will increase with the consolidation of ownership.
Project Location:
The proposed acquisition is located in Western Montana in the Lower Blackfoot Corridor, 24 miles east of Missoula. All acres are located in Missoula County
