Other Campaigns in the Crown

In addition to our place-based work we are also working to understand how climate change is affecting the Crown of the Continent.

The more we know, the better we can help the Crown—and other places--become more resilient in the future.

Climate change in Montana's Crown of the Continent

The Crown of the Continent is a natural laboratory for scientists to study climate change. This is because the region’s natural diversity makes it more resilient to climate change impacts. Currently, we are working to understand the bigger picture changes taking place in the Crown over time.      

  • Some of the most important climate and energy achievements of the last eight years—including many that were Wilderness Society priorities—will be on the chopping block the moment President-elect Trump settles into the Oval Office.

On the campaign trail, Trump said he may "cut" the EPA, but giving Ebell any authority over it may be just as bad.
