We are very excited to announce that BTC has been awarded a 2016 Montana Fish & Wildlife Conservation Trust Grant for $75,000. These funds will be used towards purchasing Phase II of the Dillon High Trails Area. This means more land will be made available for public use and wildlife habitat in our own backyard. Huge thanks to the MFWCT for their continued support as well as everyone involved that made this happen. The help from many group members as well as folks in the community was and will continue to be invaluable to efforts such as this.
BTC is excited to announce that we have been awarded $100,000 from the Montana Fish & Wildlife Conservation Trust (MFWCT). We are currently working on finalizing the terms and requirements with the granting agency. All funds are dedicated to acquiring land for the Dillon High Trails project. Because of this and other generous grants and donations we hope to close on the purchase of Phase I of the High Trails later this fall. Acquiring this first phase will allow us to complete work on the 475 acre parcel in order to prepare for opening public recreational use. No longer will the trail end at the current town overlook, but folks will soon be able to continue their walk or ride up the ridge. Thanks to all those that helped in this effort and especially to the MFWCT for their support of us and the people of Dillon and Beaverhead County!
Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to be involved in this continuing effort to open public space near Dillon.
