Vital Ground needs to raise $35,000 to finish the Tamarack Creek Project and protect 100 acres of critical grizzly bear habitat in a rapidly developing area of northwest Montana
The Tamarack Creek Project will protect priority grizzly bear habitat and connect wilderness areas surrounding Glacier National Park with secure habitat in the Salish Range and Cabinet Mountains. The project protects 100 acres of occupied grizzly bear habitat with a conservation easement in one of the fastest growing regions of the country. With its close proximity to the resort town Whitefish, Montana, the Tamarack property is significantly threatened by development. A conservation easement on the property will help support grizzly bear movement among three of the five grizzly bear recovery areas in the region.
