River to Lake Conservation Fund

Donate to the River to Lake Conservation Fund and help conserve the natural beauty and heritage of Flathead River and Lake.


Together, we can conserve the Heart of the Flathead Valley

The Flathead River benefits us in the most fundamental way – we drink from the aquifer it recharges, we enjoy the fish and wildlife it nurtures. The Flathead River also draws visitors, irrigates our fields, supports fish and wildlife, and powers our industries. It is a foundation of our outdoor way of life.

Flathead River to Lake Initiative partners work with interested landowners to conserve and restore our Flathead River and Lake natural heritage – excellent water quality, outstanding scenic and recreation values, abundant fish and wildlife, and prime farmland.

Since 2000, partners have protected 6,000 acres of critical lands, adding to a conservation network of nearly 12,000 acres of private and publicly protected lands.

Your donation helps R2L partners secure grants that require private match and conserve our special natural heritage. Thank you!
