Montana Green Wilderness Resort

At Paws Up, we engage in many of the familiar practices of conscientious, green resorts in Montana, such as using earth-friendly cleaning products and energy-efficient lights and providing organic bath products and the option for guests to reuse linens. But we don’t stop there. We have made additional environmental commitments, including featuring only catch-and-release fishing and utilizing sustainable farming practices on the Paws Up Ranch. We believe, with responsible stewardship of the land, we can continue to be one of the best wilderness resorts in the USA with plentiful environmentally friendly practices.

Listed below are some of our green initiatives:
  • “Farm and Ranch to Table” dining at Pomp and Trough
  • Members of the Blackfoot Challenge, a local organization dedicated to land conservation and stewardship of the Blackfoot River corridor
  • Development of 36 safari-style tented guest accommodations that provide a minimal carbon footprint and implementation of leave-no-trace construction at camps
  • Energy-efficient lighting and Energy Star appliances
  • Water conservation, including voluntary reuse of linens
  • Refillable, reusable Paws Up water bottles to reduce consumption of plastics provided to all guests
  • Catch-and-release only fishing
  • Sustainable products in the Wilderness Outpost
  • Organic in-room bath products
  • Employee transportation program, including a shuttle bus service and carpool reimbursement
  • On-property and nearby staff housing to reduce commuting times
  • Xeriscape landscaping (landscaping that reduces or eliminates the need for supplemental water from irrigation) throughout The Resort
  • Adaptation of existing ranch buildings into Resort facilities, including the Bull Barn, Bunkhouse, Cook Shack, Grain Shed and Reception Barn
  • Eco-friendly Seventh Generation cleaning products in all homes
  • Development of Bad Beetle, a company that converts deadfall trees killed by the North American mountain pine beetle into sustainable Apple accessories
  • Development of Greeno, a company that converts deadfall trees killed by the North American mountain pine beetle into sustainable flooring
