We work with you…

to conserve water, wildlife, and working lands and connect the people to the beautiful open lands of the Bitterroot Valley

We know Montanans have a special connection to the land, waters, and wildlife of our majestic state.

Since 1996, Bitter Root Land Trust has been working to protect an extraordinary rural landscape in Montana’s Bitterroot Valley. These important open lands that make this region so special are farms and ranches that feed our families with fresh produce and beef, forests providing firewood and wildlife habitat, and endless recreational opportunities – inviting outdoor adventures and connecting generations, young and old, to the land.

We don’t do this work alone.

We work closely with landowners, farming and ranching families, partner organizations, local businesses, and community members  to protect the lands they cherish the most.

Landowners

By working with landowners, we can protect these special places that define the rural way of life we all love and keep this corner of Montana intact for future generations.

Conservation can be a useful tool to protect working farms and ranches, mountain stream and wetlands, forests and open rolling hills.

Donors

There are many ways to get involved with us in conservation.

Whether you’re volunteering for trail work, attending an event or program, or getting friends together in your backyard to learn about BRLT, we are here to work with you to serve the communities of the Bitterroot Valley.

Communitites

As our community grows and changes, so do the needs of the people that make this beautiful valley their home.

As part of our mission to conserve the waters, wildlife habitat, and family farms and ranches of the Bitterroot, we also strive to safeguard natural open lands like Skalkaho Bend Park and Steve Powell Park for the people of today and for generations to come.

Partners

Conservation has real staying-power when we team up. We’d love to partner with your local organization or business to connect people to the land.
