Education and Outreach Projects
That was the best four hours of education I’ve received in 25 years.
Community Education and Outreach
For years, the Task Force has partnered with Ophir Elementary educators to inspire the next generation of river stewards. Our education programs include raising trout from egg to fingerling in the classroom and monitoring water quality with students in nearby rivers and streams. In recent years, we have expanded our watershed awareness programs for professionals. Recent examples include storm water management during construction, realtor continuing education, and watershed restoration for water resource professionals.
Campaigns to Protect Water Resources
Small, simple behavior changes have huge impacts on water quality. Properly maintaining your septic system, landscaping with the river in mind, and cleaning your boat or waders after each use will protect the Gallatin from excess nutrients, harmful chemicals, and aquatic invasive species. Check out our educational resources and learn how you can lead a trout-friendly life.
