Investigation underway

Six hundred fifty acres of United States Forest Service and Fish, Wildlife and Parks land were ablaze this past week near Big Sky. The tally of scorched acres climbed significantly after an aircraft was able to gps the fire. No private land or structures were damaged.

More than 40 people gathered in the Montana Room at Buck’s T-4 on Sept. 19 for cookies, coffee and a discussion of the future of the canyon. 

A feasibility study supported by the Gallatin River Task Force is underway and being conducted by engineering consultants WGM Group and AE2S.
