The Western Montana Conservation Commission (WMCC) announced today it will hold its next two-day public meeting on June 4-5 in Kalispell.

"The Western Montana Conservation Commission is excited to welcome you to our upcoming meeting in Kalispell,” said Mike Koopal, Chair of the WMCC. “As we reflect on our first year, we are proud of the progress we’ve made to protect and improve the quality of western Montana’s resources and look forward to all that is to come. To help shape our work, we want to hear from you – join us this summer.”

As recommended by Governor Greg Gianforte’s Red Tape Relief Task Force to reform inefficient state regulations, the passage of Senate Bill 83 in the 2023 Legislative Session established the Western Montana Conservation Commission on July 1, 2023.

WMCC serves as a convening body to facilitate close cooperation and coordination between federal, state, provincial, tribal and local resource managers to monitor the condition of aquatic and natural resources across western Montana.

The two-day meeting will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 4 and from 8:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 5 at the Hilton Garden Inn Kalispell. 

The meeting is open to the public and a public comment period will be held each day at 2:15 p.m. on June 4 and 12:20 p.m. on June 5.
