Scotchman Peaks is the wild backyard of North Idaho and Northwest Montana. But right now, there are no legal protections to ensure it stays that way. Here’s how you can help save it.
It could be swinging a Pulaski to improve a wilderness trail. Or sharing the joy of nature by leading a hike. It could be keeping tabs on the local flora and fauna. Stewardship comes in many forms.
There’s no better way to show love for Scotchman Peaks than volunteering for trail crews. It’s the work that keeps our wild backyard open for everyone. You can join a group trail day or adopt a trail to go out solo or as a family unit!
