Purchase a Swan Valley License Plate!

SEC and NwC Shintangle: Plate Art Unveiled Amidst Quists’ Music
By COLLEEN KESTERSON, Pathfinder, August 28, 2014 (PDF)

We are pleased to announce a specialty license plate supporting conservation efforts in Montana’s wild and beautiful Swan Valley. The plate features artwork by celebrated wildlife artist Ron Ukrainetz, a Montana native with a rich family history in the Swan Valley.

To get a Swan Valley plate for your Montana registered vehicle, take your old plates and a copy of your vehicle's registration to your local County Treasurer's Office.  You don't have to wait until your current plates expire!

Each year a $20 donation from the license renewal fee will support the conservation work of Northwest Connections and Swan Ecosystem Center.

Plates will be available January 31st, 2015
