Lolo Peak


It’s the same old story: removing public lands from public use for private profit. Here are some of the risks of development of public lands around Lolo Peak: damage to both winter AND summer habitat for wildlife; impacts to water in Carlton, McClain, Mormon and Lolo Creeks and the Bitterroot River; road-related landslides; and loss of traditional access to quiet, personal recreation and solitude.

45 million years and holding
For longer than anyone can remember, this icon has looked out over our valley, our homeland. Nature has shaped her; this is as it should be. Today, we see the north side of this majestic peak — home territory for deer, elk, black bear, mountain lion, coyote, wolf, wolverine, lynx, fisher, hoary marmot, and woodpeckers, hawks, and eagles.

It looks the same and offers the same wildness as it did when Lewis and Clark looked at it 200 years ago. We Montanans place a very high and special value on wildlife and wild places, and we guard them jealously, for our own sake, and for the sake of our grandchildren.
