Ecosystem Health

A healthy ecosystem has robust biodiversity and habitat complexity. Waterways are connected and wildlife can move through linked corridors without running into insurmountable barriers.

Maintaining and rebuilding ecosystem health can be a challenge. Following over a century of heavy industrial use, many areas of the Clark Fork River basin are recovering from extensive damage. Current rates of growth and development in western Montana put additional pressure on ecosystems. We work toward finding a balance with growth and sustainability because thriving communities depend on healthy ecosystems.
