Montana Open Land Month VIDEO














Founded in 1997, the Bitter Root Land Trust’s mission is to partner with landowners to conserve the scenic open spaces, cold clean waters, wildlife habitat, and working farms and ranches of the Bitterroot Valley for this and future generations.  The founders had a vision for this local land trust to be a leader in private land conservation and a trusted resource for the community in which it serves.  Today, the Bitter Root Land Trust is an integral community partner, working with the people of the Bitterroot Valley to ensure that our Montana paradise continues to be as beautiful tomorrow as it is today.   The Bitter Root Land Trust is committed to helping local families leave a lasting legacy of open lands for the future of the Bitterroot Valley.  Our generous community of supporters makes our good work possible.
Bitter Root Land Trust has now worked with 29 different families in the valley to conserve over 5,600 acres of wildlife habitat, water resources, and working farms and ranches. 
If you have questions or want to learn more about BRLT's important work, contact our staff at 375-0956.
We live in the Bitterroot because we enjoy the natural beauty, friendly communities, clean water and freedom to enjoy the outdoors. The Bitter Root Land Trust helps conserve family farms and ranches while protecting clean water and important wildlife habitat.

Your support makes our good work possible.
