Centennial Mountains Wilderness Study Area and ACEC, BLM Montana

This 28,000-acre mountain range, which forms the boundary between southwest Montana and Idaho, is some of southwest Montana’s wildest country. Designated as an Area of Critical Environmental Concern in 2006, it is considered an important corridor for wildlife movement, providing an east-west trending mountain range connecting the Yellowstone Ecosystem with the rest of the northern Rocky Mountains. Abundant wildlife in the Centennial Mountains include moose, elk, deer, wolverines, badgers, black bears, a wide variety of birds, and occasionally wolves and grizzly bears.  

About 60 miles of the 3,100-mile Continental Divide National Scenic Trail runs through the mountain range. Activities include hiking, horseback riding, camping, fishing, wildlife viewing and photography.

Dozens of wildfires are scouring California this summer in what may go down as the worst fire season on record.The Rocky Lake Fire, north of San Francisco, chewed through 54,000 acres on Sunday, up from 27,000 acres the previous evening. As of Monday morning, roads remained closed and more than 12,000 people were ordered out of their homes, NBC News reported.

New hunting seasons and heavy-handed state management plans could cost the lives of hundreds of wolves across Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies.

Defenders of Wildlife has a better answer.

That’s why we’re launching new ads in the Northern Rockies to promote support for wolves and secure a lasting future for these magnificent animals.

Ads like these can make a powerful difference for our wolves. They can educate. They can inform. And they can shift public opinion – which too often can paint wolves in an unfavorable light.
