Welcome to Friends of Park County!

Promoting thoughtfully planned growth in order to protect and enhance Park County, Montana’s vibrant communities, sustainable working lands, and healthy natural resources.

Friends of Park County is focused on a single issue – managing the growth coming our way.

Growth is accelerating in Park County, Montana. We can see what may be in our future if we look west to Gallatin County and across the Mountain West – sprawling subdivisions and ranchettes, unaffordable housing, wildlife disappearing and crowds at the local fishing hole.

Growth has overwhelmed other places just like us that drifted or dithered or thought it could never happen to them.

To keep Park County, Livingston and all of our communities places we and our generations to come will be proud to call home, we need a nonprofit organization dedicated to working on a single issue – managing our growth.

And this is Friends of Park County.
