The Southwestern Crown forms the southwestern boundary of the spectacular Bob Marshall Wilderness but its forests and streams have gradually been degraded for a century. The future of this place depends on fixing the broken parts and protecting the working ones.
In an era of climate change, the Southwestern Crown is a crucial piece of a fully connected and more resilient wild landscape.
