We are fortunate that Rock Creek remains largely unaltered by human activity and currently faces no imminent threats from potentially harmful projects such as dams or large mining operations. That won’t always be the case. The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act is the only tool in existence written specifically to protect rivers like Rock Creek from a wide range of threats. Just as an insurance policy protects our families, our health and our homes from threats known or unknown, the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act ensures that rivers will never be harmed by any federally permitted activities. With strong public support for new Wild and Scenic River designations in Montana and bipartisan support for this concept from our congressional delegation, we have a special opportunity to ensure a place we love is left in the same condition (or even better) than we found it. The time is now to protect Rock Creek.
To the Montana Congressional Delegation
The Honorable Senator John Tester, Honorable Senator Steve Daines and Honorable Representative Greg Gianforte:
I support designating the lower 31 miles of Rock Creek as a Wild and Scenic river. Please join us by sponsoring or supporting a bill under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. Let's keep Rock Creek wild and scenic!
The biggest impact you can have is to contact one or more members of the Montana Congressional Delegation. If you only contact one, we suggest Senator Tester.
See below for a number of ways to easily connect with Montana’s Congressional Delegation. Phone, e-mail or fax; and, they love to get mail. Handwritten letters are fine.
Tell them about your relationship with the creek; or, your favorite creek story; or, just let them know why you love Rock Creek.
Let them know that you support designating the lower 31 miles of Rock Creek as a Wild and Scenic river. Ask them to sponsor or support a bill under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act!
