Friends of the Jocko, Arlee MT

We Love the Jocko Valley…

Let’s Protect it!

   The Jocko Valley is being threatened by industrial development proposals, from high density housing projects, to a million cubic yard gravel pit and asphalt plant proposed for a 157 acre site at the end of White Coyote Road.
   Those of us who live in the Jocko see the threat of industrial development are coming together to protect the
Jocko Valley.
   We are not willing to accept developers’ attempts to bring industrial development and its associated pollution, environmental and social impacts on the beauty and quiet that makes the Jocko Valley such a special place.

“We respect that we live on the traditional lands of the Bitterroot Salish (Séliš), Pend d’Oreille (Ql̓ispé), and Kootenai (Ktunʌ́χɑ̝) peoples. Many other indigenous peoples also passed through and cared for this space as it was often a corridor to and from lands and communities.”
