While we celebrate our rivers every day, this October is an especially important milestone for protected rivers in the US. October 2, 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act. And if that wasn't exciting enough, just last month, on August 2nd, the President signed East Rosebud Creek Wild & Scenic Rivers Act into law, making East Rosebud Creek the first Wild & Scenic river in the state of Montana since 1976.

So we are having a party!

Join us on October 3rd at MAP Brewing in Bozeman, from 5-8pm to celebrate this incredible moment in Montana's conservation history! Good beer, great friends and stellar door prizes from Costa, Yeti and Patagonia - what more could you want? Click here for more event information and tell your friends.

Wild and Scenic designation status is a really big deal. In fact, it's the strongest form of protection a river can receive. If you are interested in learning more about our efforts to protect more rivers in Montana under the same designation, check out our proposal page and submit your endorsement if you haven't already.
Wild & Scenic River Voices
 
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act, we are capturing stories of Montanans who love their rivers and want to see more protected. Do you have a river story of your own to share? Visit 5000milesofwild.org and tell us! If you’re a Montanan (or even if you aren’t a Montanan) that is interested in being featured on an episode of Wild & Scenic River Voices, email Kascie to set up an interview.

Send a Text to Protect Rivers
It’s a smart phone world these days, and if you’re like us, you do a lot of work on your phone and need a quick and easy way to voice your support for river protection. Decisions that impact our rivers can happen fast, and often we can’t get to our computers to send an email to our legislators. Luckily, we’ve created a way for you to respond to these issues through text messaging. After opting in, we will ask for your basic information (name, address, email) and when important issues arise and your voice is needed for rivers, we will send you a text to take action. Text “WILDRIVERS" to 555888 to get started today!
