Community Engagement

Community is the heart of Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness. After all, the reason conservation supporters work to save the wild Scotchmans is so the kids and grandkids in all our lives can enjoy wild places decades from now. FSPW is a grassroots organization fueled by the support and volunteer spirit of northern Idaho and northwestern Montana towns.


We get people outside and into the Scotchmans all year long. Our free guided hikes are led by volunteers and open to everyone.


We host events in northern Idaho and NW Montana to bring people together who love to get outside. Some events are educational and others are simply a celebration of our wild backyard.
