Jack Creek Hero

Tom Urell and Jim Singer were out hiking up Jack Creek Trail, U.S. Forest Service Trail 6317, about 10 miles east of Ennis, Mont on Jan. 27. Both men were familiar with the area and were experienced outdoorsmen—both hunters and Singer formally employed at Glacier National Park.

The Madison Conservation District has been working on a restoration project along Jack Creek for four years. After talks first spurred in 2014, the two-phase project is seeing its first milestone in the near completion of phase one.
