As the president of Friends of East Rosebud, an organization designated to preserving and protecting the East Rosebud Creek, I was very pleased to see U.S. Rep. Steve Daines, R-Mont., introduce legislation to preserve the East Rosebud Creek by designating specific segments of its waters under the Wild and Scenic Rivers System.
The East Rosebud is a beautiful and pristine area in Carbon County surrounded by wilderness. This special place deserves protections, as countless Montanans and visitors from all over the world descend on this one-of-a-kind landscape to enjoy its natural beauty. Ensuring future generations have this opportunity is incredibly important.
Having spent much of his youth hiking in and enjoying the Beartooths, Daines understands what this place means to Montana’s way of life. it is very encouraging that he is undertaking this effort on behalf of all of us that call this state our home.
