Since 1958, we’ve been uniting and mobilizing people across Montana, creating and growing a conservation movement around a shared love of wild public lands and waters. We work at the local level, building trust, fostering collaboration, and forging agreements for protecting the wild, enhancing public land access, and helping communities thrive.
Our work has resulted in 16 wilderness areas, the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument, and other legislative, administrative, and executive victories that have protected millions of acres of public lands from irresponsible development and degradation.
In recent years, our work has expanded into the State Capitol, where we drive pro-conservation policies that help communities benefit from public lands. It’s expanded to the federal level, where we’re helping make conservation and the health of rural communities priorities for public land management agencies. And we are doing our part to make public land more accessible and welcoming for all people.
About Wild Montana's Flathead-Kootenai Chapter
The Flathead-Kootenai Chapter supports Wild Montana’s mission by providing community outreach and education that inspire residents of Flathead, Lincoln, Sanders, and Lake Counties to protect wild public lands and waters in the northwest part of the state, including the Cabinet Mountains, Scotchman Peaks, the Yaak, the Swan Range, and other landscapes.

Join us for a Wilderness Walk
Since our first Wilderness Walk in 1960, thousands have joined our volunteer leaders on outings in every corner of the state.
What started with 14 hikers in the Crazy Mountains has grown into a summer-long celebration for hundreds of participants to share their love for the wildlands that make Montana so special. There’s something for everyone, from northwest Montana stretching to every corner of the state, and you’re invited to be a part of it.
