Poll finds support for Rocky Mountain Heritage Act's Front protection plan


A new survey by a Colorado-based pollster, commissioned by the Wilderness Society, found that Montanans favor, by a 3 to 1 margin, a Rocky Mountain Front conservation plan that includes more wilderness.

The Rocky Mountain Heritage Act, unveiled in September by the Coalition to Protect the Rocky Mountain Front, proposes to add protection to 393,000 acres.

…Wilderness Society spokesman Jared White in Bozeman said the results show that the conservation plan's popularity crosses political and geographic boundaries. "They all seem to like this approach," he said.
