Flathead Lake, Montana
Original, hand-drawn story map and accompanying gifts of Flathead Lake by renowned Illustrator and Xplorer Maps Co-Founder, Chris Robitaille.
Located in northwest Montana, Flathead Lake is the largest freshwater lake in the western United States; larger than Lake Tahoe, deeper than the Yellow Sea and as pristine in water quality as any comparable lake in the world.
This project is a unique and exciting collaboration among Xplorer Maps, Flathead Lakers and the University of Montana's Flathead Lake Biological Station. Our objectives are to help raise awareness and funds for these two organizations that have invested so much in the future of the lake and have proven to be exemplary stewards of its resources.
Xplorer Maps released 300 signed and numbered Limited Edition Giclee Prints of the Flathead Lake Map in the summer of 2012 of which all were sold out. However, the lithographic prints will continue to be sold. Xplorer Maps has donated more than $16,000 from the sale of these prints as well as the original artwork to the above organizations to help with ongoing water quality monitoring, community education and conservation related products.
