Montana’s beloved Smith River is under threat of forever pollution from an underground copper mine. Will you please help us save this national treasure? More than 12,000 concerned citizens commented in opposition to this mine because of ample scientific evidence showing the great risks it poses to the Smith River and its world-renown trout fishery. Montana’s Department of Environmental Quality permitted the mine anyway
Montana Trout Unlimited and our partners have fought this short-sighted project since the beginning and we aren't about to stop now.
Floating the Smith River is the trip of a lifetime for thousands of people every year. Its fishing, scenery, rich Native American pictographs and wildlife offer a life-changing experience for families and friends of all ages and experiences. A clean Smith River and a healthy fishery generates more than $11 million annually to Montana’s economy.
How much is each of the Smith River float’s 59 miles worth to you for future generations? Would you consider $1, $2, $5, $10 per mile to help us protect it? Please make a donation to Save the Smith today and help us preserve the beauty and majesty of this national treasure for years to come!
