About the Southwestern Wildlands Chapter
Southwestern Montana is home to the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. At 3.35 million acres, it's the biggest forest in Montana, but also the least protected. We're working to make sure remaining wildlands like the West Big Hole, East Pioneers, Lima Peaks, Italian Peaks, and areas along the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail stay wild, forever. We get into the backcountry to take care of area trails and stop the spread of invasive weeds. We host events to make sure people know about our incredible backyard wildlands, and we speak up to keep southwest Montana wild.
How We Keep Montana Wild
The Southwest Wildlands Chapter is MWA's newest chapter. We are focused on strengthening MWA's grassroots support for wild places by identifying new supporters and putting boots on the ground to steward the lands we love. Our chapter meets monthly to identify and plan for opportunities to more deeply engage wilderness lovers. We encourage interested people to join us.
