ABOUT THE FLATHEAD RIVER VALLEY


Located in the southeast corner of B.C., The Flathead River Valley is unmatched in North America for the variety, completeness and density of carnivore species that live and breed there. It is a magical place that has never been permanently settled. The Flathead Valley is so wild that it has a grizzly bear every kilometre. All the native large animals – cougars, wolves, elk, deer, moose – still roam this valley. As rich in plant species as the Okavango Delta or the Serengeti, the Flathead is a mixing zone for plant species from north, south, east and west and is noted for its brilliant wildflowers. It remains a strategic, food-rich valley in the greater Rocky Mountain corridor.

The Flathead River Valley is one of the most biologically important places on the planet. Located next to the World Heritage Sites of Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta and Glacier National Park in Montana, it’s the missing piece in the world’s first International Peace Park.

Coast to Cascades Grizzly Bear Initiative

Launched in September 2013, the Coast to Cascades Grizzly Bear Initiative aims to restore the five threatened grizzly bear populations in southwest British Columbia and to connect grizzly bear habitat while encouraging environmentally responsible development. We can accomplish this by protecting grizzly bears from mounting threats and stemming their loss from our wild places, safeguarding year-round ample habitat, and ensuring connectivity between grizzly bear populations.
