Watershed Science Program
Our Watershed Science Program reaches students throughout the Clark Fork Watershed. Students learn about the history of the watershed and the science that goes into restoring and remediating our environment.
To deliver our Watershed Science Program in Missoula, we rely on student interns from the University of Montana. The students serve as a bridge between the university and the community.
Trout in the Classroom
Our Trout in the Classroom program brings a trout-based curriculum to students in rural schools in the Clark Fork and Blackfoot Watersheds. Students learn about the biology and ecology of trout and dissect trout donated by the Washoe Fish Hatchery.
Fly Fishing & Conservation Camp
Each year we host a Fly Fishing & Conservation Camp that aims to give all kids the opportunity to learn how to fly fish. Campers get to fish in creeks, rivers, and lakes around southwestern Montana while also learning about the value of conserving these places.
CFWEP in Missoula partners with the Montana Osprey Project to provide osprey banding, monitoring, and education. This program is in elementary schools with The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes on the Flathead Reservation.
Blacktail Creek Beaver Mimicry
Working with project partners and volunteers, students had the chance to restore and monitor wetland and stream habitats to areas of southwest Montana outside of Butte in the Blacktail Creek Watershed through installing beaver mimicry devices.
