The Clark Fork Coalition, Five Valley’s Land Trust, Montana FWP and Missoula Parks and Recreation are looking for volunteers to help collect data of who and how many people are using the river during the hot summer months. This data will be crucial in developing sustainable management plans, building and improving access points, preserving the natural integrity of our river corridor and more.
People are needed who are able to spend a few hours by the river in the afternoon/evening hours. During their shift, volunteers will be assigned to a local river access — you choose your favorite, we’ll have volunteers at Buckhouse Bridge, Madison Street Footbridge and Sha-Ron — to count and document river use.
Come to the Volunteer Training on June 19, at 6 p.m. at the Madison Street Footbridge to learn more about the project and how you can get involved.
