Crown of the Continent Focus Areas

The Crown of the Continent is a spectacularly wild portion of Montana's Rockies — just as wild today as when Lewis and Clark traveled through it more than 200 years ago.

At Wilderness, our work in the Crown of the Continent focuses on three important areas.

Northwestern Crown

The Northwestern Crown is a hidden, unprotected gem where conservation has been overlooked for too long.   

Southwestern Crown

We are righting decades of abuse and neglect in the Southwestern Crown by restoring water quality and protecting wild places.

Rocky Mountain Front

This wild corner of the Crown has a quality of life and land that’s all its own. We are making sure it stays that way.
