Carbon County Resource Council

Carbon County Resource Council is a group of concerned citizens advocating responsible use of resources and finding solutions to problems that affect our unique quality of life.

We were formed in 1997 by citizens concerned about an airport expansion. We are working hard to protect the unique quality of life in Red Lodge and ensuring smart growth in town to maintain the character and lifestyles in Carbon County.

Oil and Gas

We work to ensure local residents, water, and soil are protected during oil and gas development by working to pass appropriate reforms.

Clean Energy

We work to expand energy efficiency and clean energy opportunities in Carbon County.

Local Food

We work to expand access to local food in Carbon County and educate residents about the benefits to our health, our climate, and our communities when we choose local first.
