PCEC works to safeguard the land, water, wildlife
and rural character of Yellowstone’s Northern Gateway
through a community-based advocacy network.
Protection, conservation, and restoration of the free-flowing nature of the Yellowstone River and its many tributaries for fish, wildlife, water quality, and recreation.
To preserve open space by advocating for public land & access, wildlands, wildlife habitat, working farms, ranches and rural communities.
We believe that community, economy, and environment are not competing interests, but three complementary pillars of community resilience.
“The idea of wilderness needs no defense. It only needs defenders”
