This general support renewal grant will support the Montana Wilderness Association’s organizational mission of protecting as much of the state’s remaining 7 million acres of roadless land as possible. To achieve its goal, during the grant period, the Association will seek enactment of new wilderness policies and ensure that Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management plans protect their roadless lands. The Association will work to broaden its support base, particularly among young people, sportsmen, businesses, tribal members, and women. It will also educate decision makers, the public and the media on the value of roadless lands to Montana.

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.
