A collaboration involving diverse stakeholders, including state and federal agencies, conservation groups, timber and energy companies, and a public land trust to acquire and permanently protect 13,398 acres near Whitefish, has garnered international recognition and accolades.

The Whitefish Lake Watershed Project earned the Habitat Conservation Partnership Award at the 2019 Wings Across the Americas Ceremony in Washington, D.C. on April 23. The U.S. Forest Service International Programs and Environment for the Americas co-hosted the event to “recognize exceptional efforts in advancing conservation for migratory species,” according to a release sent May 17.
