No. 1718 LEGAL NOTICE Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) seeks public comment on a proposal to purchase approximately 772 acres of forest along 1.3 miles of the Flathead River near Columbia Falls to protect water quality and important fish and wildlife habitat, while providing free public recreation access. The property is highly developable and threatened by the rapidly growing city of Columbia Falls, but would be protected as a Wildlife Management Area under this proposal. The Columbia Falls Aluminum Company (CFAC), a subsidiary of Glencore, a multi-national company, has decided to dispose of this property. The property is winter range for elk, moose, and white-tailed deer. Completion of this project would safeguard vital habitat and a travel corridor for bull trout and grizzly bears, Endangered Species Act-listed Threatened species found on the property. FWP has scheduled a virtual public hearing August 26, 2021 at 6:00 pm to provide interested organizations and private individuals an opportunity to ask questions about the proposed project and submit public comment. The online meeting will be livestreamed on the FWP website via Zoom (https://fwp.mt.gov/aboutfwp/regions/region1) and the FWP YouTube channel. Instructions for participating in the virtual meeting will be posted online beforehand. A copy of the draft environmental assessment is available at the FWP office, 490 N. Meridian Rd., Kalispell; Montana State Library, 1515 E 6th Ave., Helena; FWP State Headquarters, 1420 E 6th Ave., Helena; and the FWP website at https://fwp.mt.gov/public-notices.
