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?
