“Conserving Land and Protecting Water Quality” is a continuing education course that introduces real estate professionals to a range of water resource topics that are relevant to real estate transactions. The goal of this course is to empower REALTORS with relevant water resource information to pass along to landowners to help them make wise land use decisions. These decisions can help protect a landowner’s investment, human health, and provide many community, economic, and ecologic benefits. Objectives of the course are to provide real estate professionals with water resource information that will help:

  1. accurately and professionally represent property and potential water resource issues
  2. provide landowners necessary information to make legal, wise, and sustainable decisions on their property that affect water resources
  3. identify permit requirements for developing near water resources

This course is certified by the Montana Board of Realty Regulation, administered by the Gallatin Association of REALTORS, developed by the Gallatin River Task Force, and taught in partnership with the Gallatin Local Water Quality District, Gallatin City-County Health Department, Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology, Gallatin Invasive Species Alliance, Big Sky Water and Sewer District, and Montana Land Reliance. This course would not be possible without the support of the Big Sky Area Resort Tax District
