On the road

  Hitting the road could be one way to protect roadless lands. Starting Oct. 9, the Montana-based Native Forest Network is on a road trip to communities in the Northern Rockies to call attention to 10 threatened roadless areas. Among them are the Gallatin Range and Rocky Mountain Front in northern Montana, the headwaters of the St. Joe River in Idaho and the Kettle Range in Washington, among others. The organization will provide a forum for community speakers and local musicians, and present slide shows and poetry readings at each stop on the tour. Phil Knight, coordinator of the group's Yellowstone branch, hopes the visits will inspire people to defend their wild places. The group might visit the Southern Rockies, he adds, if local residents show interest.
