Since 1958, we’ve been uniting and mobilizing communities across Montana, creating and growing a conservation movement around a shared love of wild public lands and waters. We work at the local level, building trust, fostering collaboration, and forging agreements for protecting the wild, enhancing public land access, and helping communities thrive.
We believe in bringing all parties to the table to find proactive solutions that meet the challenges facing coldwater fisheries. We work to protect important habitat, reconnect degraded waterways and restore trout populations.
