The first Montana State Parks & Recreation Board meeting will be held on Wednesday in Helena. 

The board will hear proposed motions on an amendment to the North Shore of the Missouri Conservation Easement, easement/license for Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park, easement for Thompson Falls State Park, and Milltown/Blackfoot River easement/purchase. The board will also hear informational presentations on Milltown State Park, the draft Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan, the capital construction/improvement program, the off-highway vehicle grant program, and the snowmobile grant program and equipment update.

The Board will hold a work session and orientation on Tuesday.

The new board has five members who were appointed by Gov. Bullock earlier this month, including Diane Conradi from Whitefish, Jeff Welch from Livingston, Mary Sexton from Choteau, Tom Towe (chairman) from Billings and Doug Smith from Dagmar.

The creation of the board was widely supported by the 63rd Legislature, based on a bipartisan Environmental Quality Council 2012 report.
