PROTECTING WILDLIFE, HABITAT, AND PUBLIC ACCESS FOR EIGHT DECADES

The Montana Wildlife Federation (MWF) is Montana’s oldest, largest, and most effective conservation organization. MWF was founded in 1936 by hunters, anglers, landowners, and other conservationists who were concerned about the loss of Montana’s natural lands, healthy waters, and abundant wildlife. Our dedicated staff maintains this legacy.

MWF has members all over Montana and the nation as well as a network of 15 local affiliate clubs. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Over the years, MWF has conserved wild rivers, natural lands, abundant fish and wildlife, and public access for outdoor recreation. MWF has secured some of the Treasure State’s most important conservation victories, including:

♦   the best stream access law in the West
♦   a ban on confined wildlife farms
♦   protection of Montana’s public lands and waters

“Our aim is to preserve our natural resources for the public as a whole, for the average man and the average woman whom make up the body of the American people.”  – Theodore Roosevelt
