The Gallatin Range is a wildlife corridor between the Crown of the Continent and Yellowstone National Park. It provides clean water for nearby towns, a refuge for wildlife and world-class recreation.
But overuse could harm all of these values. The Wilderness Society is working to both protect its wild places and ensure there are recreation opportunities.
The Gallatin is the last and largest wild mountain tract bordering Yellowstone Park that is not permanently protected.
A long-term vision for the Gallatin Range will permanently protect its core while improving recreational opportunities in the forest that surrounds it.

Wilderness is a precious resource with many human, natural and economic benefits that we need to protect.
Hear artists, activists and adventurers share what the ownership and legacy of these American wildlands means to them.
