Yellowstone is more valuable than gold.

But right now, foreign mining companies are planning two job-killing, toxic gold mines bordering Yellowstone.

Local landowners and local business owners are banding together to stop these mines. We're working with them to fight our old-school mining laws for a fair chance to shape our futures.

These mines threaten Park County's sustainable and resilient economic engine. And the borders of Yellowstone are no place for mines.
