A $1 million natural resource settlement is turning the Butte Hill green.
Former Governor Schweitzer approved the Butte Area One restoration plan back in January.
Yesterday, a celebration was held on the Butte hill to give thanks for the grant money.
The plan allocates $1 million in natural resource damage settlement funds to Montana Tech over the next eight years.
The money will be used to develop small patches of native plant communities around the Butte Hill.
