Wild & Scenic – Conserving Montana’s Rivers
Montana’s healthy rivers and clean water are critical to our state’s prosperity, our unmatched way of life, and to our flourishing fish and wildlife.
From the Flathead to the Yellowstone, and from the Clark Fork to the Missouri, rivers are the lifeblood of Montana. They provide us with drinking water, irrigation water, and world-class recreational opportunities.
Montana’s robust outdoor recreation and agriculture industries thrive on the abundance of clean water and wild rivers.
All Montanans – anglers and agriculture producers, cowboys and kayakers – understand our state’s history is tied to our rivers. Now it’s up to us to decide our rivers’ future.
The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act was inspired by Montana rivers and has been used here for decades. Now is the time to conserve the most important headwaters streams on Montana’s public lands using the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act.
Montana residents, business owners, sportsmen, and conservationists have joined forces to identify and conserve the last, best free-flowing rivers in Montana. The Montana Headwaters Security Act creates new Wild & Scenic Rivers that will protect our outdoor recreation and agriculture jobs and guarantee our Montana way of life will survive for generations to come. Our most precious streams will forever remain clean and free-flowing, from backcountry gems in the Flathead headwaters like Spotted Bear, to public lands sections of the Gallatin, Smith and Yellowstone.
Montana still has what the rest of the country wants – plentiful clean water and free-flowing streams. Montanans know there are some waters that are too important to jeopardize.
Let’s not be complacent and wait for the next threat from out of state water interests. Now is the time to act.
The Montana Headwaters Security Act is our made in Montana insurance plan to keep rivers healthy in a changing climate and a growing population. Join us in conserving Montana’s next Wild & Scenic Rivers.
