There are a variety of public agencies, land trusts, nonprofit organizations, and private landowners working on conservation in the Blackfoot watershed. The Conservation Strategies Committee provides a forum for these individuals to exchange information, prioritize projects, pool resources, and leverage efforts. When Plum Creek Timber Company began selling land in the early 2000s, this committee began facilitating the community-driven process to convey those lands – nearly 300,000 acres – into new ownerships that would permanently protect natural resources, local livelihoods, and community values.
