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.
We bring the wild back to forests that have lost it and permanently protect those that haven’t.
We stitch together neighbors and new allies to advance conservation by recognizing and honoring their place on the land.
Wilderness is a precious resource with many human, natural and economic benefits that we need to protect.
Hear artists, activists and adventurers share what the ownership and legacy of these American wildlands means to them.

The Legacy Roads and Trails Remediation Program (LRT) was established by Congress in 2008 to address the budgetary needs of the U.S. Forest Service's massive road and trail system, which suffers due to chronic underfunding and rising fire-fighting costs. It delivers funds to address critical road issues in real time, enabling the Forest Service to efficiently design and implement projects appropriate for the specific area and local needs.
