Today is the  Wyoming application deadline. The 2018 antelope hunt is on the calendar!

It's going to be a unique antelope hunt, part of a story on the fate of Wilderness Study Areas.

Feeling pretty dang lucky that this is what work looks like for me these days. I get paid to hike and camp and observe different landscapes? And sometimes our boss brings her dogs along? I mean, c’mon. #wildernessstudyarea #wsa #citizenscience #sciencerules #wildernesscharacter #lookingatplants #lookingatdogs
Suns out... Lizards out. Central Nevada is crawling with these beautiful Great Basin collard lizards right now. @alvey_ski spotted this one in the Palisade Mesa Wilderness Study Area. Tag us in your Nevada wildlife photos. #lizardsofinstagram #wildnevada #keepitwild #wsa #wildernessstudyarea #greatbasincollaredlizard
In #wilderness of the west desert, I saw granite so clearly in communion with the shape of water and ice. Its sharp, unforgiving texture still mingled among soft, weathering boulder faces and cracks in which entire piñon trees grow. Bats flew above our camp at night while golden eagles and jet-like vultures soared beyond the draw above to the sun. As I scrambled up the #granite crevices reaching for the highest dome possible to surmount I thought, “maybe it’s sharp because it doesn’t want to be touched.” #foodforthought

In other news I got the first two best scores at Tetris @the1upcolfax today. 😈

Most people view Wyoming as a shrubland and not a desert. But the red desert region on Wyoming really lives up to its name. I found this horse skull while exploring a little known wilderness study area south of I-80 #adobietownwilderness #reddesert #wyoming #wildernessstudyarea #tumbleweeds
The northern Red Desert is a big and perfect place 👌👌👌 *

Spring ‘18 staff retreat is in the books! There might be a smarter, more committed, more passionate, and better-looking crew out there (unlikely), but there’s no group of people in the world that I’d rather work and play with every day. From the Kootenai to Billings to Bozeman to Missoula to Helena to Great Falls to Conrad, every one of these folks spends their days doing real, unglamorous, on-the-ground work to make sure Montana’s wild places stay untamed, that our waters stay crystal clear, that our wildlife can thrive. That’s hard work, but there’s not an a ounce of cynicism in this group (about work, at least). Just talk to any one of these folks and the passion is obvious. You don’t knock on thousands of doors without passion. You don’t make hundreds of uncomfortable phone calls. You don’t willingly put yourself in the middle of unfriendly (and sometimes outright hostile) meetings. You don’t read 300 page forest plans over and over and over. You don’t dig deep to build broad coalitions, to find common ground. You don’t walk away from those coalitions when they’re not working out. You don’t recruit and organize hundreds of volunteer hike leaders across the state. You don’t give your blood and sweat to maintain our trails. You don’t fight for the Blackfoot Clearwater; for the Whitefish and Gallatin Ranges; for our prairie wildlands; for the Upper Missouri River Breaks; for the Big Snowies and the Crazies; for Montana’s 44 wilderness study areas; for the Bob, the AB, the Lee Metcalf, and all our other Wilderness Areas; for the wild, untamed, and unspoiled natural heritage that unites us as Montanans. The hard work, the tears, the struggles, the fear, and the frustration of this work are real, but they’re a small price to pay, the best gift that we can give to these wild places that have given us so much. So proud of this crew. 🍻🍻💚💚

The future of Montana’s wilderness study areas is a contentious topic, no doubt about it. Everybody won’t agree on everything, but we believe that, at the very least, all Montanans should have a say in determining the fate of these spectacular wild places. In light of all this back and forth, we wanted to give Senator Daines on opportunity to speak for himself on the matter. This is what he had to say.

In December, Senator Steve Daines introduced a bill that would open five wilderness study areas - nearly half a million acres of pristine wildlands - to oil and gas development, mining, and new off-road vehicle use. This bill would constitute the largest rollback of protected lands in Montana’s history.
.
.
All of this was done with virtually no input from Montanans - in most cases, residents were cut out of the process entirely. Just one county had a public meeting, and it was so poorly publicized that only two people attended. Montana citizens who depend on WSAs for clean water, backcountry solitude, quiet recreation, wildlife habitat, and economic stability were ignored and sold out by “leaders” who are supposed to represent their interests.
.
.
That’s not how Montana works. Our Land, Our Legacy is a coalition of Montanans of all stripes determined to ensure that decisions about Montana’s wildlands are made by and for Montanans, not in Washington for the benefit of a select few. Our wild legacy is at stake.

#motivationmonday Means looking towards the future and remembering that the public lands we protect today.... will impact the lives of the generations within the womb of time.  Wildlife will persist on this earth only if we make a concerted effort to make space for them. This world is not ours to do with as we please.... it is ours to borrow.... we must leave it better than when it was inherited. ⛰

Happy #WinterSolstice2017! Nevada has some of the best night skies in the country, including the Massacre Rim Proposed Wilderness. Home to bighorn sheep, mountain lions, coyotes, ravens and raptors, and more, this place is not only a sanctuary for the night sky but for all the wild things. 📸 @basinlightphotography #WildWashoe

Notch Peak 9,658' near Delta, UT. I do have a particular bias toward this peak, but today I thought the clouds and shadows gave a nice accent. Not only is Notch Peak a legal B.A.S.E. jumping location, it is also is part of the Notch Peak Wilderness Study Area and home to Bristlecone Pine Trees that are 3,000 to 4,000 years old.

Happy FLPMA Anniversary! Signed on this day in 1976, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act governs how the BLM manages #OurPublicLands, including stunning and rugged Wilderness Study Areas like Buffalo Hills WSA in Washoe County (photo by Brian Beffort). FLPMA requires the BLM to manage the public lands in its care for the present and future benefit of the American people. This means the agency can’t designate all land as Wilderness, just like it can’t release all land for resource extraction. #WildWashoe

Tucked in northern Washoe County and measuring 21 miles long and 18 miles wide, Poodle Mountain Wilderness Study Area is part of a larger complex of Wilderness Study Areas that includes Buffalo Hills, Twin Peaks, the Skedaddle, and Dry Valley Rim. Managing these areas to enhance ecological health will benefit not only sage-grouse population growth, but other wildlife and human visitors as well. #WildNevada

Last week, Haub School students Savannah, Maddie, Emily, and Alek were selected to participate in @ecoflight 's Flight Across America Student Program.

Combining flight time in the field with education on the ground, participants explored complex landscape issues, viewing them from both the all-encompassing aerial perspective and the close up and personal on-the-ground experience. .

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be. -Anne Frank #TakeAHike

The Massacre Rim Wilderness Study Area in northwestern Nevada is remote and wild – and also one of the darkest places in the lower 48. With no moon present, viewers are able to see our neighboring galaxy, Andromeda, commonly known as the Spiral Galaxy, with the naked eye; constellations are hard to pinpoint due to the presence of so many stars. Partnering with the Bureau of Land Management Surprise Field Office, we are working on a proposal to protect this excellent night sky via a Dark Sky Sanctuary designation from the International Dark Sky Association @idadarksky, a non-profit based in Flagstaff, AZ that is dedicated to raising awareness about light pollution and protecting the remaining dark areas. Home to bighorn sheep, mountain lions, coyotes, ravens, and much more, this place is not only a sanctuary for the night sky but for all the wild things. #DarkSky

Its 142,000 acres are ideal for primitive recreation like hiking, horseback riding, and rock scrambling. Measuring 21 miles long and 18 miles wide, Poodle Mountain WSA is part of a larger complex of Wilderness Study Areas that includes Buffalo Hills, Twin Peaks, the Skedaddle, and Dry Valley Rim. Managing these areas to enhance ecological health will benefit not only sage-grouse population growth, but also other wildlife and human visitors as well.

The rugged Million Hills Wilderness Study Area is part of the stunning Gold Butte National Monument, with over 21,000 acres that provide excellent opportunity for solitude. Alluvial slopes are cut by wide sand washes, and a tilted ridge at southern end of the Million Hills WSA showcases colorful folds and fantastic vistas. #GoldButte

Nestled in the southern end of the Wyoming Range, just 12 miles outside of LaBarge, Wyoming, sits a 13,865 acre section of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land called the Lake Mountain Wilderness Study Area (WSA). Its steep ridgelines beckon to be explored, promising not just moose, elk, and mule deer, but adventure and a melancholic wanderlust as well. This landscape is an oasis away from the development around south western Wyoming and provides a place for human and animal alike to find solitude and wildness. It is one of the last known places to host a pure strain of Colorado River cutthroat trout; parts of the WSA have even been designated an Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) to help protect this colorful little trout’s habitat. 
Lake Mountain Wilderness Study Area is one of the many WSA’s under the Wyoming Public Lands Initiative (WPLI). The Sublette county WPLI committee is reviewing this section of land and working to make a recommendation for its designation. These committees are doing important work and need help and input from hunters and anglers alike. The next meeting will be September 6th 2017 at the Sublette County Commissioners meeting room, 21 S. Tyler Avenue, in Pinedale WY. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/2vm4SDe  and please consider becoming a member of the Wyoming Wildlife Federation today at WyomingWildlife.org 
There is no longer time to let others speak for you to protect your wild places and your wildlife.

I don't believe people realize just how terribly cruel nature can be. I'm not sure of the events that led to this, but I'll bet it wasn't easy. #naturesacruelteacher #easternmontana #muledeer #keepitpublic #wildernessstudyarea

Can you see the antler?? We found two in this Ferruginous Hawk nest. The largest of the Buteo hawks, it has an average wingspan of 55 inches.

@swmontanamba put together an amazing ride today from buffalo horn to porcupine in the wsa. There were 31 riders and it was a blast! Everyone should check it out! #rideyourbike #wildernessstudyarea #wsa #groupride #bigskybackcountry #bigsky #swmmba

NOTES FROM THE FIELD: Last month two @Patagonia interns left the city lights behind and headed east to monitor the condition of several Wilderness Study Areas in some of the most remote stretches of the #OwyheeCanyonlands. This is one of the many amazing sunsets they saw during their three weeks in the field.
