Result: 350,000 acres protected

With Support from The Conservation Alliance, Montana Wilderness Association built public support for legislation to permanently prohibit oil and gas development on the Rocky Mountain Front. The region is important habitat for grizzly bear, elk and bighorn sheep and offers world class hunting, fishing and camping opportunities. In December 2006, Congress passed legislation to close at least 350,000 acres of the Front to oil and gas drilling.
