The Montana Discovery Foundation serves as the public’s link to on-the-ground stewardship and conservation education in the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest. We work to get kids and adults outside, improve wildlife habitat and watershed health, promote responsible recreation, and interpret nature for students of all ages.

Tenderfoot Creek Area Land Acquisition

Tenderfoot Creek

A partnership between the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the Tenderfoot Trust, and the U.S. Forest Service was formed to facilitate and fund the acquisition of 8,221 acres of land, owned by the Bair Ranch Foundation, in the Tenderfoot Creek watershed near the Smith River, and within the boundaries of the Lewis and Clark National Forest. This land acquisition will protect key habitat for deer, elk and other species, as well as provide additional public lands on which people can recreate and hunt.

The project was completed in 2015.
