|Flathead River Valley|
Canada and the U.S. have reached an historic agreement to protect British Colombia's Flathead River Valley and almost 400,000 acres of wilderness between our two countries.
The Nature Conservancy of Canada and The Nature Conservancy, two major conservation organizations, are providing $9.4 million toward the deal which will disallow any mining or exploration on the protected land.
The B.C. side of the valley is home to grizzlies, wolves, wolverines, lynx, elk, bighorn sheep, moose and mountain goats. The Flathead River flows, undammed, from British Colombia to Montana, containing some of the purest water in North America.
