Sierra Club Montana Chapter

The Montana Chapter of the Sierra Club is a volunteer run local organization to provide local events and outings, and to address local issues in the state of Montana. The chapter includes four local groups in the towns of Missoula, Bozeman, Helena and Billings.

Keystone XL Pipeline

Keystone Pipeline Billboard in Missoula
TransCanada has applied to build the Keystone XL (KXL), an 875-mile pipeline that would transport up to 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands crude from Alberta, Canada. We oppose Keystone because it is the dirtiest oil on earth. Instead we support good paying jobs upgrading our deteriorating existing pipeline infrastructure, upgrading electric transmission lines such as the Montana to Washington transmission line, expanding renewable energy and energy efficiency in Montana which would create many jobs.

EPA Clean Power Plan Update

September 5th in Bozeman – happy to support action on climate change!
On June 2, 2014, as part of the President’s Climate Action Plan, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a draft Clean Power Plan (CPP), which will reduce carbon pollution from power plants. EPA designed a rule that was flexible, state specific, and gave states the authority to design their own reduction programs.

Wolf Update

A rally supported wolves on the weekend of June 28 at Roosevelt Arch outside of Yellowstone NP.
Wolves in Wyoming got a major break in late September, when Endangered Species Act protections were restored for wolves in the state. A U.S. District Court ruled that Wyoming’s wolf management plan is inadequate and unenforceable; as a result, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, must go back to the drawing board and work with the state to draw up a new management plan.




The Montana Chapter also encourages its members to volunteer in any capacity they are able to. Whether its writing letters to decision-makers, phone banking, serving on committees or helping out at an event – volunteers, people just like you, make it happen. To become a volunteer, please contact one of the Sierra Club offices in Missoula (549- 1142), Bozeman (582-8365), or Billings (839-3333).
