Welcome to Save the American West, an organization passionately rooted in the sprawling beauty of Montana and dedicated to safeguarding our state's unique heritage.
We are more than just an organization – we are a community of proud Montanans, staunch advocates, and believers in the power of preserving our legacy. Our inception was spurred by our reverence for Montana's storied past, vibrant traditions, breathtaking landscapes, and the tenacious spirit of our people.
Our mission is to ensure the endurance of the quintessential Montana way of life. This calls for more than just the protection of our state's natural beauty; it means upholding the values, traditions, and community spirit that have defined Montana's identity for generations.
We believe in the strength of our communities and the importance of their voices. Thus, we work hand-in-hand with local individuals, communities, and other organizations to advocate for policies and initiatives that protect the cultural and natural heritage of our beloved state.
At Save the American West, our commitment to Montana is unwavering. From the sweeping plains to the majestic Rocky Mountains, every corner of our state is a testament to the resolute spirit of the West. We pledge to maintain our natural treasures and traditions for future generations while upholding the values that have made Montana what it is today.
We believe that our Montana traditions and values can not only coexist with but actually guide our future. Through preserving our way of life, we can continue to build a future that does justice to our proud past.
Each one of us has a role in keeping Montana's heritage alive. Whether you're a lifelong resident, a newcomer captivated by our state's allure, or someone cherishing our distinctive character from a distance, we invite you to join us in our quest to save the American West, as seen through the lens of our beloved Montana.
Together, let us work to ensure that the spirit of Montana – its traditions, landscapes, communities, and values – endure. Our shared journey is not just about preserving a place, but a way of life. Join us, and let’s uphold the legacy of the Montana we know and love for the generations yet to come.
