Here's your chance to speak out against proposed gold exploration bordering Yellowstone!
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.
The grizzly bear’s amazing comeback has prompted the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to propose taking grizzly bears off the endangered species list and shifting bear management to the states of Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho.

In Greater Yellowstone, healthy rivers equal thriving fisheries and robust wildlife populations. Clean waters also help bolster a $6 billion recreation economy. With the region’s ecology and economy tied so closely together, impacts to one resource ripple out to all others. That’s why GYC is working with local business owners to protect more than 500 miles of Montana’s rivers north of Yellowstone National Park. You can help!
