Project: The Little Doney Lake Project is located deep within the Blackfoot Watershed and is part of the Blackfoot Community Conservation Area. The 1,103 acre parcel includes extensive key winter habitat for elk, deer, moose, and grizzly bears. Nesting loons and trumpeter swans also nest on this parcel. Adjacent to North Fork of the Blackfoot River, the land is critical fishery habitat. The land is a great spot for year-round, outdoor recreation.

Purpose: Maintain ecological integrity and protect community values of the lands for the future.

The Little Doney Lake parcel was purchased to help preserve the biological richness of a high-priority area for ecological diversity in the Blackfoot River Valley. The purchase was made possible by funding from the Montana Fish & Wildlife Conservation Trust, Fish Wildlife & Park’s Habitat Montana Program, US Fish & Wildlife Service Native Fish Habitat Conservation Plan, Montana Migratory Bird Stamp Program, the North American Wetland Conservation Act, and The Blackfoot Challenge.
