Herron Park Gets Closer To Growing

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

A Kalispell park is $60,000 closer to reaching its ideal size: 320 acres.

Montana Fish and Wildlife Conservation Trust just gave $40,000 to Foy's to Blacktail Trails. It's a nonprofit that's working to protect Herron Park.

A few weeks ago the Flathead county parks department chipped in $20,000.

So far the group has raised more than $2 million to buy the 260 acres of land that has been made public now.

"People can always use that land. It's not going to have houses built on it. It will actually be protected for many, many generations to come," said Carol Bibler, a member of the board of directors for Foy's to Blacktail Trails.

They still need $120,000 to buy this last 60-acre parcel.
