This summer CFC’s Volunteer River Corps will play a key role in developing the Urban River Access and Restoration Plan.
The Urban River Access and Restoration Plan is working to develop a win-win situation for river health and river users. As Missoula’s population grows, so does the impact on the river. Last year, an inventory by Missoula Parks and Recreation identified 33 separate user-made river paths in less than a mile of the Clark Fork. The inventory also cataloged 300 feet of eroding banks. Heavy use takes its toll on riverbanks, leading to less-than-healthy riparian areas. Read more about the project here.
On Thursday, June 25th from 5:30-6:30, the Clark Fork Coalition will hold a training for community members who are interested in volunteering to collect data for the Urban River Project. Volunteering will entail distributing surveys to river users during the summer. All data collected will go towards crafting a solution to the problem of eroding river banks. The training will be held at the Clark Fork Coalition office at 140 S. 4th St. West.
If you have any questions about the training or the project, contact Katie at email@example.com or (406) 542-0539 ext. 212.
