Much of the northwestern section of Montana's Crown of the Continent relies on tourism and outdoor recreation for economic support. And although Glacier National Park is well-loved, many adjacent wildlands and river still have mineral leases that been overlooked for decades.
The northwestern section of Montana's Crown of the Continent sustains a vital tourism industry and the highest density of grizzly bears in the continental United States.
Best known as home to Glacier National Park, Montana's Northwestern Crown has many wildlands still in need of protection.

Wilderness is a precious resource with many human, natural and economic benefits that we need to protect.
