Glacier National Park (MT)

In 2012, NPT worked with the Trust for Public Land (TPL) to protect the Doody homestead, a 120-acre tract of land owned by one of the park’s first rangers, from development. It is east of the West Glacier entrance, along the banks of the Middle Fork of the Flathead River, and is the second largest in-holding bought in the park. It is a popular stop among the thousands of rafters and anglers who pass by there each year. TPL purchased the property from the owner using resources from the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). NPT provided due diligence costs not covered by LWCF.
