Park County Environmental Council


We did it!

The Yellowstone Gateway Protection Act Passed Out of Congress!

Your voice helped permanently protect 30,000 acres of public lands in Yellowstone’s Gateway from the threats of industrial scale gold mining. We thank you for your unwavering dedication to this effort.

Now it’s time to thank our Montana delegation, Senator Jon Tester, Senator Steve Daines, and Representative Gianforte for their support, and to let them know how grateful we all are to see the Yellowstone Gateway Protection Act become law. Thank you for passing the YGPA.

“We worked with several environmental groups in an effort to stop two proposed gold mines in Paradise Valley, and PCEC really stands out. I am the last person you would expect to endorse an environmental group. I must say Michelle, Erica and Max were incredible to work with. YGBC is a nonpartisan group and PCEC respected that. I really appreciated that we could stay on the same page, always taking the high road and respecting each other’s views. PCEC is an asset to Park County and Michelle Uberuaga directs this group with honesty and integrity.”
