Flathead Realtor Turns Commissions Into Donations For Lake

KALISPELL -

A Kalispell real estate agent is putting more than $1,000 toward the monitoring of Flathead Lake.

Owner of Flathead Lake Land & Home, Dusty Dzizia, has been putting aside a percentage of her commission from property sales to go to UM's Flathead Lake Biological Station. The station monitors cleanliness of the lake, which she said is crucial to selling real estate in the area.

Dziza said she decided to help out after attending a meeting about the importance of the biological station's work.

"The cleanliness of lake impacts values significantly, and Flathead Lake is one of largest and cleanest lakes in world, so it's a spectacular lake, and it's one of the main reasons tourists come to the Flathead Valley," Dziza said.

She said she plans to continue making contributions. The donations go toward the station's efforts to raise one-million dollars as part of a challenge grant.

For more information on this grant, visit the Flathead Lake Biological Station website.
