About the Wild Divide Chapter
From the chapter's hub in Helena, every landscape on the horizon is wild. We're working to keep it that way. In Lewis and Clark, Broadwater, and Jefferson Counties, we're looking out the Big Belts, Elkhorns, Castle Mountain, and Sleeping Giant, and the roadless lands along the Continental Divide. Our chapter hosts film festivals and wilderness walks kickoffs, leads wildlife tracking workshops, and build community support for wildlands in the heart of Montana.

How We Keep Montana Wild
Track Wildlife on the Continental Divide
Each winter, we partner with Wild Things Unlimited to lead winter tracking workshops. More than 100 volunteers spread out along the Divide to look for signs of wolverine, fisher, lynx, and other wildlife that need big, quiet habitat to thrive - info that helps us strengthen our case for future wilderness protections.
