Welcome to the Gallatin Community Collaborative!

This site provides timely, relevant information about the Gallatin Community Collaborative (GCC).
The GCC is an inclusive, transparent, and civil collaborative whose purpose is to develop and provide community-based recommendations to the Gallatin National Forest (GNF) for shaping public lands management, with a specific focus on the Hyalite-Porcupine-Buffalo Horn Wilderness Study Area (HPBH-WSA) of the Gallatin Range.

In 2012, an Exploratory Committee (EC), made up of individuals from a very broad range of perspectives, was formed. The EC determined that a collaborative process could be effective and has moved forward in its organization. The GCC is defining the committees and the work processes and scope of each. We need your participation!

The GCC is a facilitated, consensus-based process that is open to the public and funded through donations and grants. Click Here to learn more of the GCC history. Click Here to make a donation to support this important process. We can’t do it without your help and participation!
