LEGAL NOTICE Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) seeks public comment on a proposal to purchase a conservation easement to protect approximately 27,289 acres of highly productive timberland and important fisheries and wildlife habitat in northwestern Montana to the east and south of Libby. The property is owned by the Stimson Lumber Company, one of the oldest continuously operating integrated wood products companies in the United States with roots dating back to the 1850s. The proposed conservation easement, to be held by FWP, would allow Stimson to retain ownership of these timberlands, preclude development, protect important wildlife habitat and key landscape connectivity, and provide permanent public access and associated recreational opportunities. A copy of the draft environmental assessment is available at the FWP office, 490 N. Meridian Rd., Kalispell; Montana State Library, 1515 E 6th Ave., Helena; FWP State Headquarters, 1420 E 6th Ave., Helena; and the FWP website at https://fwp.mt.gov/public-notices/news. FWP asks that comments on this draft environmental assessment be submitted to either of the following addresses by 5:00 pm on July 28, 2021: Kris Tempel, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, 490 N. Meridian Rd, Kalispell MT 59901; or via email (ktempel@mt.gov). Published In The Western News July 20, 2021. MNAXLP
