Here's the lowdown on this month's program. Hope to see you tommorow, at BJ's Restaraunt in Hamilton, MT. Social hour at 6:00pm. Program starts at 7:00pm.
The Bitter Root Water Forum (BRWF) is a local nonprofit dedicated to clean water for all through restoration and education. This month’s talk will focus on BRWF's organizational evolution and priority focus areas, with a special emphasis on their largest ever restoration project, currently underway in the headwaters of Sleeping Child and Rye Creeks.
Heather Barber has served as the Executive Director of the Bitter Root Water Forum since the fall of 2010. In her role as ED she helps to plan, implement, and oversee restoration projects and educational outreach. During her tenure BRWF has increased from one half-time staff to two full-time staff and an AmeriCorps Member, replanted over 10,000 feet of stream bank, added more than 12,000 native plants and willows to riparian areas, restored 8 miles of roads to productive landscape, and educated more than 1,000 youth annually with watershed education.
