Headwaters Montana's Transboundary Project
The Transboundary Region
In the lower 48 states, only one region retains the rich diversity of plants and wildlife today that it had over 200 years ago. It’s our very own Transboundary Flathead region.
This special place straddles the U.S. - Canada border and includes the Flathead & Elk river valleys. Its melting snow supplies billions of gallons of fresh water, feeding the rivers and lakes that deliver our regional economic good fortunes.
This ecological gem is also among the most important landscapes in North America - because it is a place of such rare ecological intactness. The Transboundary Flathead stands as the last, wildest valley in the Lower 48 states. It is also threatened by climate change, increasing human population, and energy exploitation.
Headwaters Montana actively fights threats that would compromise this region water, wildlife or traditional outdoor heritage.
You can join the effort to protect the Wild Flathead by joining donating to Headwaters Montana and joining "Friends of the Flathead".

We Are 85 Percent of the Way.... Every year we need to raise 33 percent or more of our budget from individuals like you in order to meet an IRS regulation. We did not quite make that goal, or $16,000, this year... so we must continue. Your donation counts toward this goal and the protecting the Flathead region. If you donated in 2013, we thank you! If you have not yet donated, please consider doing so at this time. Click on the "Donate Now" to go to our secure on-line donation center. Please donate today! ~ Thank You!
