Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act Passes!!
Earlier this month, after years of hard work by conservationists, recreationists, outdoors men and women, legislators, and even members of my own family, the Rocky Mountain Front of Montana received greater wilderness protection, adding 67,000 acres to the Bob Marshall Wilderness and designating more than 200,000 acres in the Lewis & Clark National Forest as a Conservation Management Area. My hometown newspaper, the Great Falls Tribune, posted a story here about this significant achievement for Montana and the outstanding heritage in what we call the Crown of the Continent. The Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act was passed along with other public lands bills, such as legislation to further protect the North Fork of the Flathead River.
