“The Fight for Wilderness in our Backyard”

Gonzaga University students advocating federal wilderness designation for the Scotchman Peaks of North Idaho and Montana will present a speaker and two films. A member of the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness will discuss the proposed wilderness area, and address specifically what must be done for it to be designated as federal wilderness land. Two films (approximately 25 minutes each) about the Scotchman Peaks Wilderness titled “En Plein Air” and “Grass Routes” will be shown.
