Great news! County officials at Yellowstone's northern gateway voted unanimously today to tell the Forest Service: Don't mine Yellowstone.
What has the power to unite Montanans of all stripes? If a raucous rally in Helena last month is any indication, it’s our state’s spectacular public lands. Hunters, anglers, outfitters, hikers, bikers, and more all rely on access to public lands to experience the very best of what Montana has to offer. One person who will soon play a major role in deciding the future of our cherished public lands is our own Rep. Ryan Zinke.
Remember our massive victory in November, when we won the two-year time-out on gold mining on public lands near Yellowstone? Join us at a public meeting in Livingston (MT) to support the time-out. Tell the Forest Service they're doing the right thing. Your voice is more important than ever as we face a new Congress and a new administration.
We did have a big victory last month – a time-out on mining on public lands near Yellowstone – but a Canadian company is still planning to explore for gold on private land. Montana is taking your comments on this terrible idea through December 12. Comment today and tell Montana: Yellowstone is more valuable than gold.
With only weeks remaining in the current Congress, you can help protect Montana's East Rosebud Creek forever. Please call Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) today (D.C. line: 202-225-0453). He's the gatekeeper to this bill's passage in the House. Tell him that Montana's full delegation supports the bill, as well as thousands of Montanans, and that this bill needs to be passed now.
