MT Smith River: Get ready to rally

The Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has added a fourth public meeting in Helena, MT on November 6, 2017. Montana Trout Unlimited is teaming up to help you get there. Bozeman and Missoula area residents will have the opportunity to hop buses to the Capitol where we will rally on the Capitol lawn before heading to the DEQ public hearing for the Black Butte Copper Project on the headwaters of the Smith River.

Join the boat procession.

Get to Helena by 3:00 p.m. on November 6th to join our boat procession. Register at either of the links provided below – this will help us coordinate a meeting location large enough to accommodate trailers.
