Blackfoot Community Conservation Area

5,600 acres managed collaboratively by community council for multiple uses.

BLACKFOOT COMMUNITY CONSERVATION AREA

The Blackfoot Community Conservation Area (BCCA) encompasses 41,000 acres of mixed public and private ownership in the heart of the Blackfoot watershed. A 5,600-acre “core” is owned by the Blackfoot Challenge and managed by a 15-member community council. These lands provide critical wildlife habitat, and for generations have been used for livestock grazing, timber production, and recreation.

The vision for the BCCA Core is to develop a working landscape that balances ecological diversity with local economic sustainability for the benefit of the Blackfoot watershed community.

HISTORY OF THE BCCA
