What's at Stake

Our Mission

The Rock Creek Alliance is a small, nonprofit organization with offices in western Montana and the panhandle of northern Idaho. Established in 1996, the organization works to protect the water quality of the Clark Fork-Pend Oreille Watershed and the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness Area from the proposed Rock Creek Mine.

With the support of our members and communities, we have managed to hold off this proposal. You can help by adding your name and those of your friends to our roster. The Cabinet Mountains Wilderness Area and Lake Pend Oreille are national treasures that belong to all of us and to generations to come.
