Montana Headwaters Legacy Act
The Montana Headwaters Legacy Act (MHLA) is a made-in-Montana Wild and Scenic rivers bill. This legislation would designate 39 miles of the Gallatin River as Wild and Scenic. As part of the Montanans for Healthy Rivers coalition, the Gallatin River Task Force has spent the last seven years advocating for MHLA. In all, 336 river miles would be granted our nation’s highest conservation protections.
Along with the Gallatin, 18 miles of the Taylor Fork are also included in the legislation. Protecting these gems and the other 15 streams that are part of MHLA would safeguard Montana’s outdoor way of life, sustain our growing recreation economy, and ensure clean, cold drinking water.
