The Montana Land Reliance (MLR) has conserved more than 26,000 acres every year since we began work in 1978. The number is significant because by the end of 2016 it’s very possible that we will have protected our millionth acre. This would be 1,000,000 acres of private land in Big Sky Country—from the tall cedars of the northwestern rainforests, the sagebrush prairie at the edge of the Missouri Breaks, to the rich farmlands of our river valleys—that will never be subdivided, and will sustain agriculture, wildlife, and fisheries for generations to come. Preserving the Montana we know for future generations is and has always been one of MLR’s greatest ambitions.
