FLBS Maps: New FLBS Nautical and Special Framed Editions Available for Purchase for a Limited Time

We are excited to announce two new additions to our FLBS maps! First up: A select number of our Flathead Lake, Whitefish Lake, and Swan Lake maps created by FLBS Research Scientist Diane Whited now feature rustic frames handcrafted by Butch MacCarter, an FLBS alumnus who conducted significant osprey research on Flathead Lake in the 1960s and 1970s. Donating his time and talents, Butch created the frames from aged redwood that was reclaimed during our recent Dining Hall Deck renovations.

Secondly, we are officially unveiling our 2021 Flathead Lake Nautical Map. Created in collaboration with Captain Genevieve Evans from Go Sail Flathead Lake, this new map features navigational information with an alternative color scheme and design. In addition to locating lake accesses, the map also highlights Good Mooring Sites, Hazardous Area Warnings, and other important information for Flathead Lake’s sailing and boating communities.
For as long as supplies last, all framed, standard, and nautical maps are now available for purchase, with 100% of the proceeds going directly toward the support of our Flathead Monitoring Program! See below for pricing and availability information, and thank you for your continued investment and support as we all work together to keep our waters clean!
