How to get involved in local issues:

Montana has many citizen groups working on conservation/environmental issues. See the Montana Conservation Directory for a list of groups and their contact information.

Contact those that interest you, or ask your fellow students or the Environmental Studies faculty which groups are working on issues that interest you.

How to find out about local environmental events:
