The Stonefly Circle
CFWEP’s Stonefly Circle celebrates individual donors making a gift or cumulative gifts of $1,000 or greater in a calendar year. The funds help support the organization’s bold new initiatives and award-winning education and outreach programs. Stonefly Circle members are united in a commitment to our mission to expand environmental literacy and stewardship through field-based science and research experiences.
The Stonefly Circle is named after the stonefly, a charismatic macroinvertebrate that can only survive in clean, uncontaminated waters. The Clark Fork Watershed has seen a return in stonefly populations as our waterways recover from a century of damage. CFWEP’s students learn that stoneflies are excellent biological indicators of stream health, and they celebrate each stonefly they find.
Stonefly Circle members receive recognition on our website, newsletter, social media channels, and donor recognition wall at Montana Tech. They also receive a signature Stonefly Circle lapel pin and an invitation to an exclusive leadership celebration event.
