Swan Valley Connections serves the public on behalf of the U.S. Forest Service, selling maps and firewood permits and providing detailed information about area recreation, including an interpretive center.
Swan Valley Connections is a collaborative conservation and education nonprofit. It collects and shares scientific information, coordinates technical and financial assistance to get conservation projects done on the ground. SVC assists landowners with living better on the land through consulting and cost share assistance for forest health, fire resiliency, water quality improvement, and weed management, as well as living better with wildlife with additional cost share assistance for electric fencing and bear-resistant trash containers. It also provides educational opportunities to people of all ages through K-12 and community programs, but what makes it unique among all the other amazing, collaborative conservation organizations around the state is its experiential college courses accredited through the University of Montana. SVC's goal is to connect people to one another and to this extraordinary landscape.
Swan Valley Connections recently released a new Swan Valley Trails Interpretive Map. This map highlights the incredible ecology, history and culture of the area, recreation access and amenities, and recreational opportunities.
