GYC strongly supports legislation that is introduced in the U.S. Congress, calling for protections for East Rosebud Creek, a spectacular stream that rushes off the granite shoulders of the Beartooth Mountains through undulating ranchlands. East Rosebud is a stronghold for native cutthroat trout.

Quite literally, there is no place on earth like Greater Yellowstone. It is fire and ice. It is jagged mountain peaks and verdant valleys. It is acres of lush forests bathing mountainsides in vivid greens and stark sagebrush plains stretching to the horizon. It is the hissing and spewing of geysers and the serenity of meadows carpeted in wildflowers. Above all. it is a rarity in this day of relentless development — a wild and alive place where the people who live, work and recreate here can experience the unparalleled wonders of one of the world’s last largely intact temperate ecosystems.
