Protecting Air & Water

Protecting and advancing air and water quality standards to ensure a clean and healthy climate for future generations

Climate & Energy

Reducing our dependence on fossil fuels through an equitable transition to renewable and clean energy sources

Let's rise up.

Help protect Montana’s clean air and water.

MEIC has worked for almost 50 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 it’s 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.

“For a practice that has a known effect on soils and strata and water, the onus should be on the applicant [to pay for mine clean-up]. I appreciate mining practices, but what is anything worth if you don’t have clean water.”
