BLM To Repair Stairs At Canaday Boat Launch

The Bureau of Land Management’s Dillon Field Office will close the Canaday Boat Launch on the Madison River July 13-14 in order to install stairs adjacent to the boat ramp.

This is the final phase of the restoration project that included reconstruction of the damaged streambank.

Canaday is located on the Madison River east of Norris between Black’s Ford Fishing Access Site and Warm Springs Boat Launch.

The site is noted for the presence of outstanding pre-historic and historic resources. It was a key stop along the historic Bozeman Trail and the location of the Canaday brothers historic bridge crossing which was constructed under charter by the first Territorial Legislature.

For more information regarding the closure or the planned project, please contact the Dillon Field Office at (406) 683-8000.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
