Please Sign the Sportsman's Petition to Preserve the North Fork of the Flathead

Recently, after 30 years of proposed mineral development on the British Columbia side of the border, the BC government declared a permanent mineral withdrawal in the North Fork of the Flathead River Valley there. Each time a Coal Bed Methane project or strip mine was proposed in BC, hunters and anglers and other Flathead River and Lake advocates came out in force, and the final results are in; the BC government heard the pleas. The US is now tasked to follow-up with protections on the US side of the border; support from sportsmen and sportswomen will send a message to Max Baucus and Jon Tester for Senate Bill 3075.

S 3075 pays respect to the BC decision, honors our Crown Jewel, Glacier National Park and its surrounding landscape, while protecting for future generations the Westslope cutthroat and endangered bull trout in the watershed’s remarkable waters, the elk, deer, bear in this hunters paradise, not mention a thriving landscape that epitomizes Northwestern Montana.

In short, many people, especially MWF, fought for more than 30 years to keep the North Fork preserved, and we’re getting very close to having that fate accomplished. Please add you name to the petition below, expressing your support as an individual for the protection of an extraordinary place. Future generations will thank you.

Thank you for stepping up for Montana’s wildlife, lands, waters, and our hunting and fishing heritage.

PETITION TO Support Passage of S. 3075

We, the undersigned sportsmen, sportswoman, and conservation-minded citizens, affix our names to this petition supporting S. 3075. The “North Fork Protection Act – S. 3075” withdraws federal lands in the North Fork of the Flathead River from mineral leasing and development in perpetuity and reflects the official actions by the Province of British Columbia, Canada to effect the same protection north of the border. The passage of S. 3075 would assure that future generations will continue to enjoy unique and unparalleled opportunities for fishing in wild, clean waters, to hunt in one of Montana’s wildest valleys, and to access one of our nation’s richest natural landscapes in the continental United States.

We, the following, do hereby support passage of S. 3075:
