Result: 275,200

Montana Wilderness Association played a key role in securing permanent protection for one of Montana’s most iconic landscapes. In December, Congress passed the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act, adding 50,500 acres to the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex and 16,700 acres to the Scapegoat Wilderness. In addition, the bill designates a new 208,000-acre Conservation Management Area that preserves recreation opportunities for a variety of user groups along Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front.
