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, where we drive pro-conservation policies that help communities benefit from public lands. It’s expanded to the federal level, where we’re helping make conservation and the health of rural communities priorities for public land management agencies. And we are doing our part to make public land more accessible and welcoming for all people.
