Montana Wilderness Association works with hikers and horsemen, snowmobilers and timber workers, ranchers and native communities, locally elected officials and career conservationists — all joining together to establish common ground and advance conservation solutions. The organization educates the public, press, and policymakers about public lands, and works to protect wildlife corridors and clean water, build and maintain trails, and increase public support for parks and trails. The Association and its partners aim to protect another 2.4 million acres by 2024. (Western Conservation Substrategy: Advance Conservation Protections.)

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
This grant would support the Montana Wilderness Association’s efforts to secure protection for much of the remaining 6 million acres of roadless public land in the state. These lands provide habitat for some of the nation’s most iconic species, including grizzly bears and wolves. In its efforts to protect these lands, the association would enlist a wide variety of people in the state, educate decision makers on the merits of setting aside roadless lands, and provide the press with materials that support roadless area protection.
