      Working with communities to protect Montana's wilderness, trails, wildlife, quiet beauty and outdoor heritage - now and for future generations.

      Our Mission
      We work with local communities around the state to protect Montana's wilderness heritage, quiet beauty, and outdoor traditions, now and for future generations.

      Our Vision
      We envision a future where – from the rugged mountains to the vast prairies – Montana’s wild places are protected, connected, and restored because the citizens of our state value wilderness as essential to our heritage and way of life.

      Our History
      For more than 50 years, Montana Wilderness Association has been working with communities across the state to protect Montana’s wilderness heritage, quiet beauty, and outdoor traditions. It’s a mission that began in 1958 when our founders, Ken and Florence Baldwin, sent a letter to 100 friends, inviting them to join a citizen-led effort to protect the Madison and Gallatin Ranges. Since that time, our commitment to grassroots conservation has proved instrumental in the passage of the 1964 Wilderness Act and in the designation of all 15 wilderness areas in Montana. We currently have more than 5,500 members and hope you'll join us to continue this important work.
