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. Membership is diverse, representing a broad cross-section of political and economic interests, and includes property owners, business owners, sports people, recreational enthusiasts, conservationists, and individual citizens concerned about clean water and the health of their local communities.

The work of the Rock Creek Alliance focuses on education and outreach activities. Staff give presentations, create educational materials, organize community events, and attend meetings on behalf of the organization. Reviewing technical and legal documents is also an important component of the organization’s work. Litigation on behalf of the Rock Creek Alliance is conducted by dedicated attorneys, several of whom are nonprofit, and is crucial in preventing construction activities from commencing as state and federal permits and approvals have been issued.
