About Us

Keeping Montana’s Rivers Clean and Free-Flowing for People to Use

Montanans for Healthy Rivers works to keep western Montana’s rivers clean and free-flowing for future generations to enjoy. We are a coalition of Montanans – families, business owners, sportsmen, farmers, ranchers, agency officials, land trusts, and conservation organizations – who, like you, know that clean water and free-flowing rivers are important both for our economy and our way of life. We work to conserve our rivers for people, fish and wildlife, today and far into the future.

We are dedicated to listening to a broad cross-section of Montanans so that we can craft homegrown river protection measures that reflect the values of all Montanans. Montanans for Healthy Rivers has already solicited input from dozens of riverside landowners, business owners, recreation groups, tribes, watershed groups, conservation organizations, and state and federal agencies. Help us to keep Montana’s rivers the way that they are, for each of us to enjoy.

Montanans for Healthy Rivers is led by a steering committee of individuals from various conservation organizations that work for Montana’s rivers. The steering committee meets monthly to strategically plan and guide the coalition’s outreach and river advocacy efforts across the state. Any questions you have regarding these efforts can be directed to any one of the steering committee members.
