Five Valleys Land Trust, others make deal to preserve Rock Creek, Montana acreage

May 20, 2012View for printing

The land along the mouth of Rock Creek - western Montana's vaunted blue-ribbon trout stream - will remain undeveloped, thanks to a deal between the owners and several local conservation groups.

Five Valleys Land Trust director Grant Kier announced the $1.6 million purchase at the group's annual banquet on Saturday. The land trust is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

"With any luck, we'll acquire this by December," Kier said. "It may take years to make it real on the ground."
