Headwaters Montana Successes

North Fork Watershed Protection Act signed into law

In December 2014, the North Fork Watershed Protection Act was approved by the U.S. Senate and sent to President Obama for his signature. The legislation designates 245,000 new acres of Wilderness and shields 430,000 acres along the North Fork of the Flathead River near Glacier National Park in Montana from future mining and drilling. This legislation complements actions taken by the B.C. provincial government to protect lands in the Canadian portion of the Flathead River from energy development. Brainerd grantees supporting this legislation included Headwaters Montana, National Parks Conservation Association, and Trout Unlimited.
