Montana Wilderness

In Montana, loggers, sportsmen and conservationists are now working together to protect nearly 700,000 acres of wilderness, keep good paying jobs in the woods, and preserve backcountry traditions.

If Congress passes the Forest Jobs and Recreation Act, it would create the first new wilderness in Montana in nearly 30 years.
