Protect wolves at the borders of Yellowstone National Park

Tourism is the lifeblood of the communities surrounding Yellowstone National Park. The economies of gateway communities like Gardiner have been hit hard by recent flooding and the closure of Yellowstone. Gateway Communities are facing another blow to livelihoods: the decimation of the Yellowstone wolf population. 
 
This season, 20% of the park’s wolf population was killed (the park typically loses only 2% to 3% of wolves annually to hunting) because of a change in hunting rules surrounding the Yellowstone. Visitors from all over the world come to the park to view Yellowstone wolves. Bear Creek Council is working to protect wolves at the borders of Yellowstone National Park.

Tell NorthWestern Energy we can’t afford more methane pollution

NorthWestern Energy is recklessly pushing forward a proposal to create a methane power plant in Laurel, Montana. This project creates financial risks for energy customers while threatening our health, air quality, and climate. Montanans deserve a fair, reliable, and sustainable source of power that protects the people and places we love. The time to act is now!
