Keep It Bitterroot

June-July 2021
The State of Montana currently loses 18,000 acres of open land each year. Growth in our valley is on a scale greater than we have experienced in decades. Although much of this growth shapes our community in positive ways, it also impacts what makes the Bitterroot a great place to call home - our open lands, our fams and ranches, our river, our wildlife, and our community. The Bitter Root Land Trust needs your help to keep the Bitterroot, the Bitterroot.
