January 27, 2022

We are thrilled to report that Peets’ Final Piece is officially protected from the threat of development forever. Thanks to an outpouring of support from nearly 700 donors, GVLT and the City of Bozeman purchased the 12 acre parcel at the south end of Peets Hill. We never could have protected this important piece of Bozeman’s most cherished park without your support. And now it’s time to celebrate!
