Public Wildlands

Montana is blessed with an abundance of state and federal public lands that provide watershed protection, wildlife habitat, and a range of public recreational and business opportunities. Montanans are able to enjoy parks, wilderness areas, trails and other public amenities thanks to the advocacy and leadership of conservationists over the past century. In places heavily impacted by past mining and other historic uses, conservationists are joining with landowners, industry, communities and management agencies to restore healthy lands and watersheds.
