we are the crazy mountains
The Crazy Mountain Project is an informal coalition of ranchers, conservationists, and hunters working to find common ground in Montana’s Crazy Mountains. For decades, the checkerboard pattern of land ownership in the Crazy Mountains has exacerbated public land access disputes. Confusing land ownership has created conflict and uncertainty between private landowners and public land users, resulting in challenging circumstances for public land managers. The Forest Service has identified improved access in the Crazy Mountains as their top priority.
We organized to support the East Crazy Mountains and Inspiration Divide Public Access Improvement Land Exchange and similar proposals that resolve uncertainty, enhance access, and protect our traditions through pragmatic compromise and common-sense agreements. Only by finding common ground can we build the types of durable solutions that will protect our Montana way of life for future generations.
