Snow is falling over Southwest Montana at last. Its arrival promises Spring renewal to our headwater streams and to the life on America’s lands that await downstream. But snow isn’t the only hopeful harbinger this season… 

We are elated and honored to announce that Senator John Tester has officially introduced the Montana Headwaters Legacy Act
Those of you who have supported us for years will understand the singular importance of this. But if you’re new to the movement, the MHLA will usher in a new chapter for Montana’s rivers and all who depend on them. This homegrown idea, born from countless conversations with local communities and diverse experts, will protect 17 new Wild and Scenic Rivers in the Greater Yellowstone and Smith River drainages. 
Over 3,000 Montanans and 1,000 businesses agree that this is the best way to safeguard our wildlife, agriculture, outdoor recreation economy, and communities big and small. Now over ten years in the making, the Montana Headwaters Legacy Act is official at last. While the journey doesn’t end here, please join us in celebration and gratitude. 

Please take a moment to thank Senator Tester for introducing the Montana Headwaters Legacy Act and taking a stand for our last, best, free-flowing rivers! 
Watch our short film about the Montana Headwaters Legacy Act and learn why it's time to pass this legislation now.

“The Apsaalooké nation has revered the rivers of the Yellowstone region since time immemorial. Apsaalooké culture believes that water is life and a great gift to be cherished. Our own ancient legacy as caretakers of these rivers is celebrated by the Montana Headwaters Legacy Act, and we support this landmark legislation.”
