Gifts that Create A Lasting Legacy

The vision we share …the legacy we create.

Your commitment to Flathead Land Trust reflects the vision we share for the Flathead’s future – where our working farms, wildlife habitat, and recreation opportunities are inseparable parts of our heritage. With good stewardship of these extraordinary natural values, together we’re ensuring that generations to come will continue to enjoy our “Flathead Way of Life.”

“We consider living here a privilege. As part of that gift, our response is to help maintain the beauty and character of the Flathead for the future. As we look toward that legacy, we didn’t have to think twice on agreeing to put Flathead Land Trust in our will. We encourage you to think about this way of being a steward of a very special place.”

~Milt and B.J. Carlson
