Park County Environmental Council… is a not-for-profit community organization that aims to protect and enhance the quality of life in Park County.

Our Mission: People working together to protect and enrich the quality of life in Park County by preserving and restoring our rivers, wildlife and landscapes.

PCEC’s vision is to create resilient ecosystems, communities and economies in Park County by advocating for open lands, clean air and water. Currently we are tackling a number of issues that jeopardize our lifestyle and economy in Park County including…

  • Two industrial-scale gold mines in the Paradise Valley
    • Lucky Mineral’s exploratory drilling in Emigrant Gulch
    • Crevice Mining Group’s proposals for road permits and mining operations near Gardiner
  • Supporting efforts to designate the Yellowstone River as Wild and Scenic
  • Grizzly bear protection
  • A gravel pit and asphalt plant on Hwy 89
  • BNSF rail yard cleanup

To learn more on each of these issues, please check out our campaign pages.

Although protecting paradise keeps us busy, we are also working on efforts to enhance the quality of life in Park County. These efforts include…

  • Improving access to public lands
  • Increasing biking and walking infrastructure in Park County
  • Working with local partners on sustainable food, recycling, youth programs and more

But we can’t do this without your help. Please consider becoming a member or contributing to PCEC.
