Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is developing a master plan for Missouri Headwaters State Park and is seeking public input on current and future usage and needs for the park.
Staff from Missouri Headwaters State Park and WWC Engineering will host a public meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 1, to discuss the goals of the master plan and answer questions from the public. They will also discuss current conditions at the park and introduce a survey where people can provide input on the planning effort.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the annex of the United Methodist Church, 124 2nd Ave. E, in Three Forks. The annex is just west of the main church building.
Those who are unable to attend or wish to attend virtually can do so over Zoom. The meeting can be accessed over Zoom via the following link:

• Passcode: 922685
The master planning effort for the park includes several goals:
• Guide the development and use of park facilities.
• Provide guidelines for the protection and management of important natural, cultural and scenic resources.
• Provide visitors with a wide range of experiences.
• Provide for public health and safety.
• Address short-term and long-term needs, while making the least impact on the landscape and cultural resources.
• Broaden visitors’ knowledge and appreciation of the area.
• Accommodate crowds while still allowing for areas of solitude.
Those wishing to provide input on issues considered in the master planning process can do so through an online survey available at surveymonkey.com/r/9HFZDKQ.
