  • North Fork Protection Act Approved!

    What a great way to start off 2015!  The passage and signing of this landmark bill achieves a critical milestone for protecting the transboundary North Fork Flathead headwaters.

    Protecting the North Fork watershed has been a priority of the Flathead Lakers for over four decades.

    We are grateful to all who supported the bill and to all who worked to ensure protection of the North Fork. We send special thanks to Montana's Congressional delegation, Senators Tester and Walsh and Congressman Daines, and to the bill's original author and long-time champion for the North Fork and Flathead waters, former Senator Max Baucus.

    Along with the other protections put in place on both sides of the international boundary over the past five years, this achievement will leave a legacy of clean water, healthy ecosystems, and lasting quality of life for all to enjoy.

  • Jordan Carte and Aaron Clausen join Lakers'staff

    The Flathead Lakers welcomed Jordan as our new Administrative and Development Assistant last fall. She is doing a great job managing membership and finances. As a Lakers' member and volunteer, she clearly demonstrated her enthusiasm for our mission and programs.

    Aaron served as our Big Sky Watershed Corps member last year, working for the River to Lake Initiative as Flathead River Steward. He did such an outstanding job that, with support from our partners, we created a temporary position to keep him around. He will continue to work with partners and landowners to plan and implement riparian restoration projects along the Flathead River and north shore.
