Glacier Gateway Project

By | October 12, 2019

Here’s a note from Bill Walker…

In case you haven’t heard about it already, the Vital Ground Foundation and the US Forest Serviceare working on something called the “Glacier Gateway Project.”

They are proposing to acquire two properties totaling about 23 acres using Land and Water Conservation Funds (LWCF). The parcels are along the section of the Polebridge Loop Road between the Polebridge Mercantile and the entrance to Glacier National Park. The acquisition would connect adjacent public lands managed by the Flathead National Forest along the designated Wild and Scenic corridor of the North Fork Flathead River.

The owners of both properties are willing sellers who wish to protect their lands from further development. (There are rumors of one potential buyer wanting to establish an RV park.)
