The Nature Conservancy protects 1M acres in Montana

Sometimes land preservation is done on a big scale. Last week, The Nature Conservancy closed on a 515-acre conservation easement, to bring the total of Montana land which is now preserved and protected from development to just over 1 million acres. One million acres of Montana protected in the 35 years that TNC has been working in the state; that’s about one acre per person. I am impressed; thanks to the efforts of the TNC and others, Montana will stay a “big sky country”. http://helenair.com/news/local/state-and-regional/the-nature-conservancy-protects-m-acres-in-montana/article_0f821f60-7698-11e3-a4ef-0019bb2963f4.html
