Delisting grizzly bears is on hold, the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) announced last week.
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.
We’re so lucky in Bozeman (MT) to have the Gallatin mountain range as our wild backyard. This is the last unprotected mountain range outside Yellowstone National Park, and it’s home to some high peaks for Montana -- more than 10 mountains over 10,000 feet, including Mount Blackmore at 10,154 feet. Mount Blackmore is one of the peaks visible from Bozeman, one that catches my eye every day.
