We protect and enhance Montana for future generations.

Clean Air

The ultimate goal? Air that is clean and safe to breathe and a stable climate for years to come.

Clean Water

Our waterways — lakes, rivers, and streams — are a legacy that needs to be conserved and protected.

Clean Energy

Reducing energy use reduces energy costs and result in a financial cost saving to consumers.

It's time to stand up.

Help protect Montana’s clean air and water.

MEIC has worked for over 40 years to keep Montana’s air and water clean. We have stopped dirty acid mines and helped pass and defend strong pollution control laws. And it’s all made possible by our members.

MEIC is made up of thousands of Montanans who care deeply about this state – our home. This strong membership has allowed MEIC to remain independent and to always fight for what is right. We would love to have you as a member too.

Our backyard, our state, our environment.

Montana is our home – and your home is worth fighting for. The land, lakes, rivers, and skies are what make Montana The Last Best Place.

MEIC is known as the heavy hitter for Montana’s environment. We take polluters to court when they break the law, we challenge government agencies when they put polluters over people, and we stalk the halls of the legislature to put a stop to bad laws. We fight for this special place like its our home – because it is.

Save Our Smith—more than just a river.

“Montana’s Smith River is renowned for its spectacular scenery, towering limestone canyons, and blue-ribbon trout fishery. It originates high in the Castle Mountains of central Montana, and flows through remote canyons before it empties into the Missouri River about 10 miles downstream of Great Falls.”
