Flathead Land Trust awarded NAWCA grant for River to Lake Conservation Project

The Flathead Land Trust was recently awarded a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Small North American Wetlands Act (NAWCA) grant of $75,000 to fund a conservation project on the north shore of Flathead Lake. River to Lake Initiative partners are excited to be working on another north shore conservation project.

NAWCA grants help the Initiative compensate landowners for placing a conservation easement on critical wetlands and bird habitat.

These projects along the Flathead River and on the lake’s north shore conserve clean water, healthy habitat, prime farm land, scenic vistas, and recreation opportunities.
