Spring Into Action

With your input over the last several years, we at Montanans for Healthy Rivers have drafted the Montana Headwaters Security Act, which would protect 37 new headwater rivers and streams in Montana as Wild and Scenic. If you've been to a film tour show or opened an email from us over the last month, you've probably heard of it. If this your first time, that's cool too.

In order to get this legislation introduced in Congress, we need everyone who cares about the future of Montana's rivers to take action now. Several of us are traveling to DC this week to sit down with our congressional delegates and talk shop about the Montana Headwaters Security Act. Your voice of support to the delegation today and over the next couple of days will set us up for a successful visit. Spare a minute of your day to make a call, send an email here, or click the "Take Action" button below. No action is too small to help protect our precious rivers!
