GYC pushing for more Wild & Scenic rivers in Montana

The Greater Yellowstone Coalition, along with Montanans for Healthy Rivers, is advocating for our Montana delegation to introduce the Montana Headwaters Security Act. This act will create a legacy of Wild & Scenic Rivers in Montana by proposing over 40 new Wild & Scenic rivers and streams with 18 in Greater Yellowstone. If you live in Montana, tell Senior Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) at 202-224-2644 and Representative Greg Gianforte (R-MT) at (202) 225-3211 and tell them you support the Montana Headwaters Security Act!

Sewage spill fouls Gallatin River

Sewage spill fouls Gallatin River

News broke the afternoon of March 3rd that large treated water spill occurred near Big Sky, Montana. The wastewater infrastructure failure is an unfortunate reminder that we must be vigilant when development occurs in Greater Yellowstone’s sensitive watersheds. We applaud the forthright response from the system managers to immediately alert state officials of the release of an estimated 35 million gallons of treated sewage water into the West Fork of the Gallatin River.
