Two major milestones have paved the way for completing the Owen Sowerwine Conservation project. Funding to purchase a conservation easement on the 405-acre property was successfully secured last fall.
Additionally, the Montana Land Board unanimously approved the purchase of the conservation easement on state land, paving the way for closing the project later this spring. Stay tuned for more news and upcoming celebrations!
“We’re very excited to have received approval from the Land Board to complete the purchased conservation easement to permanently protect Owen Sowerwine. This is an important step forward for the project and we are grateful. We can now move forward to close on this incredible project and hope to do so early in 2024,” said Flathead Land Trust Executive Director Paul Travis.
We are incredibly thankful to the Flathead community for their generosity and support, and the Flathead Land Trust, Flathead Audubon, and Flathead Lakers for their dedication to the project and collaborative fundraising efforts over the past two years. Thank you!
