Access Projects Completed:

Pioneer Road: Successfully sued Flathead County to reopen an illegally abandoned county road providing access to the Flathead River and 80 acres of US Forest Service land.

Lake 5: Worked with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks to work through lakeshore owner lawsuits to successfully acquire and develop a Fishing Access Site on Lake Five near West Glacier.

Wagner Lane: Threatened Flathead County with legal action over proposed abandonment of a road providing access to Church Slough. Negotiations resulted in a county fishing access site, day-use area and boat ramp being built.

McGregor Lake: Filed a lawsuit in 2016 against Flathead County over an illegally built house and lawn and other encroachments on a county road that blocked access to 64 acres of Fish, Wildlife and Parks land on McGregor Lake. The full Right Of Way (ROW) has not been cleared despite a 2011 District Court ruling. Currently negotiating with the County and landowners to alter and survey in a narrower ROW but also re-establish the previous 15′ two-lane road and remove all encroachments from the ROW.
