Uniting and mobilizing communities to keep Montana wild. We envision a Montana where people and wildlife flourish because public lands and waters are wild and connected.

Since 1958, we've been uniting and mobilizing people across Montana, creating and growing a conservation movement around a shared love of wild public lands and waters. We work at the local level, building trust, fostering collaboration, and forging agreements for protecting the wild, enhancing public land access, and helping communities thrive.

Our work has resulted in 16 wilderness areas, the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument, and other legislative, administrative, and executive victories that have protected millions of acres of public lands from irresponsible development and degradation.

In recent years, our work has expanded into the state capitol, the federal level, and we are doing our part to make public land more accessible and welcoming.
