Clean water, public access, recreation, thriving forests, uncluttered views and wildlife are all part of our way of life. Whitefish Legacy Partners is dedicated to creating permanent access and recreational opportunities on the public and private lands surrounding Whitefish for generations to come. We are also committed to providing more revenue than ever for Montana’s schools and universities. This is our legacy. Help us protect it.
Smith Lake Legacy
500 acres of prime forestland surrounding Smith Lake could be sold for development. Protecting this landscape is a win for Montana Schools and Universities, wildlife, working forestry, and public recreation.
The Whitefish Trail
The City of Whitefish and Whitefish Legacy Partners have built 47 miles of natural-surface trail and 15 trailheads. Locals and visitors have a great variety of easy-to-locate recreation opportunities on public and private lands that will create a 55+ mile trail surrounding Whitefish.
Close the Loop
The Whitefish Neighborhood Plan and the Whitefish Trail Master Plan provide a platform for community driven conservation efforts. Close the Loop outlines four final phases of conservation to secure a permanent trail system through threatened landscapes.
