Wild Clearwater Country

Friends of the Clearwater is a grassroots advocacy group that works to protect the public wildlands, wildlife, and waters in the Clearwater Basin. We believe these important natural resources belong to all Americans, and that decision-making should be informed by the best-available science. We oppose efforts, even if well meaning, that seek to circumvent our democratic public decision-making processes. Such actions are not in the best interest of the public or our spectacular wildlands, wildlife, and watersheds.The Wild Clearwater Country is the traditional hunting and fishing grounds of the Nez Perce people. Today, it is also known as the northern half of The Big Wild, the largest remaining undeveloped wildlands complex in the lower 48 states. Please join us in trying to protect this special place!
