Waging Effective Campaigns
Powder River Basin Resource Council has been protecting Wyoming’s quality of life and agricultural heritage through effective campaigns in our main focus areas since 1973.
We organize landowners and citizens to pass and implement landmark policies at the state and federal level to address and prevent impacts from oil and gas development on our land, water, air, wildlife, property, and health and safety.
We are the only Wyoming-based group that works to protect our land, water, and way of life from the impacts of the largest coal strip mines in the nation. We also work to improve Wyoming’s air quality by reducing air pollution at coal-fired power plants.
Since our founding, we have been committed to preserving and enhancing our agricultural heritage and supporting our family farmers and ranchers, strengthening our rural communities, and building Wyoming’s local foods economy.
Renewable energy creates jobs and stimulates the economy while decreasing harmful pollution. Wyoming has an opportunity to join many other states and nations in embracing the benefits that renewable energy can provide.
