New State Parks Board to Convene in Kalispell
Board will hold meeting at Lone Pine State Park on Thursday
The Montana State Parks and Recreation Board will meet on Thursday, Oct. 17, at 8:30 a.m. at the Lone Pine State Park Visitor Center in Kalispell. The public is invited to attend and public comments can be made at 9:30 a.m.

The board will be reviewing and discussing the draft Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP), commercial use Rules, Montana snowmobile program grants, Montana off-highway vehicle program grants, major maintenance projects and more.
The board will hold a work session on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 1 p.m. at Lone Pine, located at 300 Lone Pine Road in Kalispell.

Gov. Steve Bullock assembled the first state parks board this year after the Legislature passed a bill creating a separate commission and named the five commissioners to oversee state recreation spots previously managed by the Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission.

The chairman is Billings attorney and former legislator Tom Towe. He is also the founder of the group “Our Montana” that aims to preserve scenic, archaeological, historic and other places.

Bullock also appointed former Department of Natural Resources and Conservation director Mary Sexton, a Choteau rancher, as well as Diane Conradi of Whitefish, Jeff Welch of Livingston and Douglas Smith of Dagmar.
