On June 15th from noon-1pm, Morgan Valliant, Conservation Lands Manager, will give a presentation about the Urban River Restoration and Access Project.
A 2014 inventory by Missoula Parks and Recreation identified 33 separate river access points totaling almost 300 feet of eroding banks along a ¾ mi. stretch of the Clark Fork River through town. This level of bank erosion degrades both aquatic and terrestrial habitats, threatens public infrastructure (commuter trails) and in some cases is a public safety hazard.
On June 15th, Valliant will be talking about the efforts to mitigate this erosion, the organizations involved in the process, and what you can do to help. We will be meeting under the Madison St Bridge at noon and walking a short distance along the bike path.
