The priority for Montana's Accord is purchasing land and conservation easements in the northwestern part of the State to protect resident fish habitat in the beautiful Swan Valley, shown below. This effort is complemented by many other ongoing projects in the State of Montana to protect resident fish and wildlife.

Westslope cuthroat trout are raised at Sekokoni Springs Hatchery, east of Kalispel. The trout are indigineous to the Kootenai, Flathead, and Clark Fork watersheds in Montana, where they have lived for thousands of years.
Cutthroat trout are being transported to Pyramid Lake for release, in a project to protect and restore native trout to high mountain lakes in Montana.
