BIGFORK, Mont. (AP) — Thirty acres of land with 3,500 feet of Flathead River shoreline has been donated to Montana's Outdoor Legacy Foundation.

The Missoulian reports that Glacier Bank donated the land that connects to the 1,887-acre Flathead Lake Waterfowl Production area administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Foundation spokeswoman Jane Ratzlaff says the donation expands the area and provides a lot more riverfront.

Ratzlaff says the land was a repossession and is prime wetlands next to a protected area.

She says the area attracts osprey, teal, marsh wrens and other wildlife.
