Goodrich Bayou conservation easement protects important wildlife values and farm soils along the Flathead River corridor

Goodrich Bayou is a back channel to the Flathead River frequented by numerous waterfowl, otters, bears, coyotes and herons.

In September, Chrysta Bourne donated a conservation easement on her 37 acres bordering the Bayou to be held by the Flathead Land Trust to protect its wildlife values.  A large portion of the property also has prime farming soils if irrigated, an important resource in the Flathead Valley.

Special thanks to the landowner for the conservation gift to the Flathead community!
