Wild Livelihoods Business Coalition

Ethos: Equal Parts Rachel Carsen and Aldo Leopold, with a splash of Teddy Roosevelt

Wild Livelihoods is a coalition of Montana businesses in the Greater Yellowstone whose livelihoods depend upon wild places. We share common interest in protecting open spaces, clean air and water, rich soil and native plants, and vibrant wildlife populations for all. We are guides, restaurants, lodges, gas stations, retailers, ranchers and more. We put our money where our mouth is, and our heart is where our treasure is. We embrace ideas like “fair chase”, “leave no trace”, “catch and release”, and "live off the land". We also recognize the challenge of “loving a place to death”. So, we work to perpetuate what is good and improve what could be better for our community, our landscapes, our wildlife, and the future of our children. We have Wild Livelihoods.

  • Is your local business or livelihood in any way dependent upon the people that recreate in and around Yellowstone Park?

  • Do you want to work with other businesses who deliberately choose to be stewards of this place?

  • Do you want to work with others who understand the ethical challenges of over-visitation, and take a role in discussing solutions with policy makers who are making decisions for you?


Consider signing up to support one of the many projects we volunteer time and money towards. We are not a legal entity. We give our own money and sweat equity to conservation projects. We are simply a group of tax-paying businesses who share common ground in our belief that keeping the Greater Yellowstone region as wild as possible is good for our livelihoods.

Our member businesses are committed to helping visitors responsibly experience the same sense of wonder, amazement and gratitude that we do from this very special place. Yellowstone National Park’s northern gateway possess abundant natural beauty and countless opportunities to experience an area with abundant wildlife and wild landscapes.
