Montanans Opposing Big Sky Country National Heritage Area have paid for three billboards which are now up at highway entrances to the Great Falls community.
The purpose of the billboards is to help spread awareness of the proposed Big Sky Country National Heritage Area designation.
The proposed National Heritage Area designation would affect all of Cascade County and part of Choteau County.
The communities impacted by the designation would include Loma, Fort Benton, Niehart, Monarch, Ulm, Vaughn, Belt, Simms, Sand Coulee, Black Eagle, Cascade, Eden, Stockett, Sun Prairie, Sun River, Malmstrom AFB, Great Falls, and several Hutterite colonies.
The message from the opposition group is clear: “Together, we will stop the NHA designation!”
