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 Wilderness Society applauds the Obama Administration for advancing bipartisan efforts to further protect ocean ecosystems and their scientific value by using the Antiquities Act to expand the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument, an undisturbed island and atoll chain located 1,000 miles southwest of Hawaii. The proclamation builds on the approximately 83,000 square-mile national monument initially designated by President George W. Bush in 2009.
