Photo of Deer Creek CrossingProject Name: Deer Creek Crossing Conservation Project

Sponsor: Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in partnership with Five Valleys Land Trust & US Fish and Wildlife Service

Year: 2012

Grant Amount: $125,000

Total Project Cost: approximately $1,290,000

Project: The Deer Creek Crossing purchase has been one of FWP's highest fisheries conservation priorities because it will prevent development and degradation of this critical stream reach, will allow restoration efforts on and off the parcel to succeed, and will further leverage fisheries conservation investments elsewhere in the Deer Creek watershed.

Purpose: The Deer Creek Crossing Conservation project has been added to the Marshall Creek Wildlife Management Area (MCWMA).

This project consolidates public ownership in a key area for fish and wildlife conservation and secures additional public access to the MCWMA.

Directions: This 645 acre section (24) is located 6 miles northwest of Seeley Lake and is adjacent to the southern bourndary of the FWP MCWMA.

Restrictions: Visit Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks: for details on visiting this site.
