Description: Montana’s free-flowing rivers and clean water are critical to our state’s prosperity, our unmatched way of life, and to our flourishing fish and wildlife. They provide us with drinking water, irrigation water, and world-class recreational opportunities. Montana’s traditional agricultural economy and our rapidly growing $7.1 billion outdoor recreation economy thrive on the abundance of healthy rivers and clean water.
Please join guest speaker Ryan Cruz of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition as he shares his decade-long effort to introduce and pass new legislation called the Montana Headwaters Security Act, which would designate new Wild and Scenic Rivers flowing out of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness and on other public lands in southwest and central Montana.
Meeting Time and Location: 10AM at Lake Fork of Rock Creek trailhead
