Rocky Mountain Front

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

The Rocky Mountain Front is home to world class hunting and fishing, working cattle ranches and some of North America’s finest wildlife habitat. For over a decade, step by step, we have worked with local partners to save it. 

Why the Rocky Mountain Front?

The Rocky Mountain Front is simply the last of the best.

Work we’re doing

Fact – The Front can’t be improved. Instead, our work is keeping it the way it is.

Our partners

Protecting the Front is a unifying call to action that attracts partners from every walk of life.

    The Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument will be a unit of the National Park Service and was announced on the eve of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, which was established on August 25, 1916.

    The next fiscal year starts on Oct. 1, meaning that Congress is running out of time to cobble together "must-pass" appropriations legislation that will pay for the day-to-day expenses of the federal government.

    But in what has become a sad annual commentary on some leaders' dereliction of America's conservation tradition, the process is gummed up with counterproductive “riders” that have no place in the appropriations process, and would hurt wildlands right when they sorely need our help.

    The court rejected a claim by Elko County Nevada that it owns a road, commonly known as the South Canyon Road, at the edge of the Jarbidge Wilderness within the federally managed Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. The ruling officially disapproved a 2001 settlement agreement between the United States and Elko County that would have given the county the right-of-way.
