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 2015 Annual Report

  • For this report, The Wilderness Society reviewed data from more than 16,000 parcels auctioned off by the state. The analysis details more than a century of land sales that have privatized and closed off an amount of once-accessible lands nearly the size of the entire Sawtooth National Forest. Parcels often end up in the hands of some of Idaho’s biggest industries, while others have been turned into gravel pits, strip malls and even exclusive private fishing retreats and lakeshore hideaways for those wealthy enough to buy them.
