The Beartooth Front Community Forum (BFCF) is a grassroots, nonpartisan organization that seeks to retain and enhance the quality of life in the Red Lodge, Montana, area.  They do this by focusing on public education and involvement, and promoting thoughtful, constructive dialogue on issues affecting the region.

Impact: Past BFCF efforts have assisted in the creation of the first Red Lodge master land use plan, the creation of the Boys and Girls Club of Carbon County, and a bearproof garbage container program designed to reduce human-bear conflicts. In 2016, funds helped BFCF to host a forum on Mental Health issues in our area as well as a dialogue about Public Lands.
