Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) purchased a 243- acre property along two miles of the Flathead River in 2009. The high-quality, riparian riverbank has outstanding habitat values for both fish and wildlife. The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), which funded the acquisition to mitigate fisheries impacts of Hungry Horse Dam, holds a perpetual conservation easement on the property. Cap and Bonnie Ingham sold the property to FWP at a significantly lower price than the appraised value, making this project feasible and a great public value.
