FWP Reviewing Possible Land Donation Near Pine Grove Pond

By Beacon Staff

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is reviewing a proposed donation of 5.39 acres of land northeast of Kalispell near the Pine Grove Pond Fishing Access Site.

FWP has written a draft environmental assessment for the possible acquisition. The addition would access nearly 1,800 feet of the Whitefish River and allow FWP to provide public access for fishing, wildlife viewing and picnicking adjacent to the very popular Pine Grove Pond. This addition would also allow access to and from the Whitefish River for canoeing, rafting and kayaking.

The draft is out for a 21-day public review through Oct. 15.

The draft is available at FWP headquarters, 490 N Meridian, Kalispell; Montana State Library, 1515 E 6th Ave., Helena; Flathead County Libraries: 247 First Ave. E, Kalispell; 130 6th Street W, Columbia Falls; & 9 Spokane Ave., Whitefish; and the FWP website under Public Notices.
