Free Flowing & Clean

As we enter a new year, we're pausing to reflect on our progress and the journey to come. For all its challenges, 2020 brought major strides toward protecting Montana's free-flowing rivers. Looking forward, there is so much to be hopeful for. 
 

You may have seen the recent Washington Post Article on Senator Jon Tester's introduction of the Montana Headwaters Legacy Act. 
 
Last November, Senator Tester set the standard for modern river protections in Montana. By introducing the Montana Headwaters Legacy Act he answered our collective decade-long call to preserve our last, best rivers. The landmark legislation would set aside 17 new rivers and streams as Wild and Scenic, including parts of iconic waters like the Yellowstone, Madison, and Gallatin rivers.

We're gearing up to support the act's reintroduction in 2021. While we do, let's take a moment to reflect on how far we've come. For the sake of our communities, wildlife, and robust economy, we thank Senator Tester. 

 

Help us thank Senator Tester!
 
Please take 60 seconds to call Senator Tester's Washington DC office. Let's thank him for introducing the MT Headwaters Legacy Act and tell him we support reintroduction in 2021!
