We believe people working together can make a difference.
Northern Plains’ mission is to organize Montanans to protect our water, land, air, and working landscapes. We support a healthy, localized, and sustainable economy in farm and ranch country and in our towns, and build strong grassroots leaders, always considering the next generation.
We are everyday Montanans who love where we live.
We are working toward a future where we live in harmony with nature, where our economy serves the people rather than the people serving the economy, where neighbors work side-by-side to build a world that lives up to our ideals of fairness, inclusion, and justice.
