Posted on Wednesday, December 16th, 2009 by »

It’s Wilderness Wednesday and we are going to have some fun this week with trivia! We have five questions  to test your Scotchmans IQ – let’s see how well you know the Scotchman Peaks:

1) How many acres of the Idaho Panhandle have been designated as Wilderness?

2) Which Two Chamber of Commerce’s have endorsed Wilderness Designation for the Scotchmans?

3) When was the last time congress designated Wilderness on the Kootenai National Forest?

4) How many Montana Sportsmen Organizations have endorsed Wilderness Designation for the Scotchmans?

5) How many acres of the Kootenai National Forest are designated as Wilderness?

You can find out the answers to these and many other questions on our “Background Facts” web page.  Visit there now to see how you did!

If you correctly answered all these questions, then you are probably already a supporter of ours.  If you aren’t a supporter yet, sign up for our newsletter, that’s all we ask:
