Habitat Montana Program

The Habitat Montana program is our state’s best tool to protect critical wildlife habitat, maintain our traditional working lands, and provide public access to the outdoors. It's helped local landowners voluntarily protect their private lands for three decades. 

Unlocking Public Lands & Waters

Revenue generated from the sale of recreational marijuana helps maximize Habitat Montana's conservation impact. Here are just a few examples of projects that will be fueled by healthy Habitat Montana funding:  

New Access to Big Snowies

 Montana has an opportunity to create a new Wildlife Management Area in the Big Snowy Mountains that will protect wildlife habitat, increase public access, and provide new hunting and other outdoor opportunities for Montanans.


Montana Great Outdoors Project

The Montana Great Outdoors Project is an opportunity to permanently protect nearly 200,000 acres in northwest Montana through “working forest” conservation easements. 

Lower Yellowstone River

Funding will support efforts in eastern Montana to improve public access, enhance recreational opportunities, and boost the tourism economy for communities along the the lower Yellowstone river.
