On the outskirts of the Northern Rockies, Missoula has no shortage of natural beauty or wildlife. Known as the Garden City, its residents thrive in the outdoors and enjoy the abundance of city parks and conservation lands, as well as supporting community green efforts. Missoula is home to some of the country’s best fly-fishing rivers and streams, and puts great value on maintaining high water quality. The City of Missoula partnered with the National Wildlife Federation and became the first Community Wildlife Habitat in Montana on July 25, 2018. With a wealth of partnerships ranging from individual community members to non-profit organizations and local agencies, our Community Habitat team is excited for the future of wildlife gardening in our city!
