Canadians conserve thousands of acres near Glacier

Canadian loggers and environmentalists have teamed to craft one of the largest conservation agreements in North America, creating a new link in a chain of protected lands stretching north from Montana.

The deal between Tembec timber company and the Nature Conservancy of Canada protects nearly 100,000 acres of land. Most of those acres lie north of Montana’s Glacier National Park, in river drainages pouring off the Canadian Rockies, through Libby Dam and into Montana’s Kootenai River.
