About Us

Swan Valley Connection is a non-profit organization situated in Montana's scenic Swan Valley. Our mission is to conserve the intact ecosystems within and surrounding the Swan Valley and to strengthen the connection between people and the natural world through collaboration and experiential learning. 

We Value

The responsibility to protect one of the last best, wild places on Earth.

The abundance of public lands, the legacy that led to their conservation, and our responsibility to protect and steward them in perpetuity.

The critical role private land stewardship plays in maintaining high quality habitat and the health of the land and all its inhabitants.

Experiential learning that informs and inspires individuals of all ages and backgrounds to care for the natural world and be leaders in conserving it.

Partnerships and collaborative decision-making that integrates science and local knowledge to support sustainable land management practices.

Traditional ecological knowledge and the role of tribal people in current and future conservation, as the Swan Watershed has been used by many tribes and is the aboriginal land of the Salish and Kalispel people.

Community involvement and the use of local, qualified contractors and the work it provides for the regional economy.
