FWP seeking applicants for Church Slough work group to discuss motorized boating issues
KALISPELL — Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking applicants interested in serving on a work group to discuss motorized boating issues on Church Slough in Flathead River.
This winter the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission received a petition from members of the public to restrict motorized use on Church Slough to a controlled no-wake speed. At its Feb. 4 meeting, the commission chose not to adopt a no-wake restriction but rather have FWP establish a local working group to look at possible solutions that address recreational boat use on the slough. The working group will be tasked with coming up with recommendations for the commission to consider for possible rule making.
FWP is seeking members who are open-minded and willing to collaborate with other members when moving towards a recommendation. The group will consist of local members of the public from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives.
