The Missoula County Parks and Trails Advisory Board frequently forms partnerships with non-profit organizations to improve and maintain County parks and other public recreation areas. In these partnerships, the Park Board provides planning assistance and funding. In turn, the partner organization matches those funds through a combination of project expenses, in-kind donations and volunteer service hours.
