In 1992, through the vision of then ISD 318 superintendent Dan Kaler and the Blandin Foundation, the Edge of the Wilderness Community Center was formed as a nonprofit corporation. The project was for the EWCC to collaborate with the school district to provide enhancements to the Bigfork School that neither entity could manage on its own and in that way serve the local communities. As a nonprofit, the EWCC could apply for grants that the public schools could not; the school, however, could contribute its buildings and support network. Since its inception, the EWCC has been a force for changes and improvements in the area.
