East Rosebud Wild and Scenic Rivers Act



House Bill H.R.2787

East Rosebud Wild and Scenic Rivers Act



Journalist Joel Harris and film maker Daniel Lombardi have produced a documentary about Montana's Wild and Scenic Rivers



Our Goal is Wild & Scenic Designation for the part of East Rosebud Creek that is situated on Forest Service land. East Rosebud Creek’s beauty draws tourists from all over the world, provides income to local businesses, supports stable real estate values and generates substantial tax income. This area has been threatened by small scale hydropower projects several times in the past. We want to make sure this cannot happen again. We seek Wild & Scenic designation for East Rosebud Creek.
