American Lands Council
National Nonprofit Organization
The American Lands Council is a national nonprofit organization working toward long-term, constitutionally-sound solutions to improve public access, environmental quality, and economic productivity on federally controlled public lands.
Jennifer supports abundant outdoor recreation; healthy air, water and wildlife; and safe, vibrant communities. But decades of federal control have all too often locked up our lands and produced just the opposite. State owned public lands tend to be much better managed, so Jennifer joined the American Lands Council to help bring more public land management decisions closer to home, where they belong.

Regarded as one of the top Constitutional specialists in Montana politics, Senator Fielder received the prestigious Keeper of the Tenth Award for outstanding defense of the rights of the States and the people in accordance with the Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. The award was presented in 2015 by Montana's Agri-Women, one of the State's largest agricultural associations.
After her tireless efforts working on Right to Hunt legislation with multiple sportsmen's organizations, and chairing Senate Fish and Game Committee for four years, one of the State's largest sportsmen's organizations awarded Senator Fielder the 2019 Legislator Appreciation Award. She was the only Senator to receive the MTA award.
