Our Mission:

  • PCEC works to safeguard the land, water, wildlife and rural character of Yellowstone’s Northern Gateway through a community-based advocacy network.

Our Values:

  • Representing an honest, local perspective on a range of environmental issues.
  • Finding creative solutions to controversial problems.
  • Empowering Park County citizens to engage in conservation issues, including land-use and development decisions.

Our Programs:


  • We work to protect public and private lands from industrial threats to our air, water and wildlife through engaging a diversity of stakeholders in Park County to ensure that citizens and our local government have the tools they need to respond to development and conservation concerns.


  • We seek to build collaborative conservation efforts to protect Park County’s waters from the increased threats of overuse, drought and climate change through sound water conservation practices and sustainable use.


  • We provide a voice for wildlife in Park County by advocating for sound science to guide management decisions regarding wildlife in Yellowstone’s gateway through protecting critical lands and wildlife corridors.

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.
