The past week has been a trying one for all of us here in Big Sky, and indeed across the globe. From closures and cancellations to social distancing and self quarantine, we’ve been challenged in ways we never thought possible only a few days ago.
Here at the Task Force, we value a healthy community above all else, so we wanted to reach out and take a moment to check in with you, our community:
- All Task Force staff are working normal hours remotely and are available to answer any questions you might have.
- As you may have heard, our screening of the Fly Fishing Film Festival has been postponed—stay tuned for updates.
- All in-person meetings and public information sessions have moved online, including the Canyon Wastewater Upgrade Info Session on April 1. Tune in by clicking this link and scrolling to the bottom of the page once it loads.
- We will be assessing other upcoming events and meetings and providing updates as things develop
It is unclear when things will go back to normal, but for now we can take solace in the river. We encourage you to spend time along its banks. Go fishing, go hiking, go floating if the weather permits. Do so safely and with communal well-being in mind. If you feel so inclined, share your adventures with us on our Facebook and Instagram pages, using the hashtag #FriendsoftheGallatin.
For our part, we’ll continue fighting for a healthy and clean Gallatin River. We’ll do so remotely while necessary, and in the field once spring arrives. We look forward to the day when you can join us!
