Aquatic Invasive Species Update: New Threats and Solutions

Aquatic invasive species are threatening our watershed now more than ever. The detection of aquatic invasive mussels in Tiber Reservoir last October dropped the possibility of a massively destabilized Clark Fork Watershed at our back door. This spring, Montana’s lawmakers are evaluating a series of recommendations for protecting water quality and other natural resources from the AIS threat. What exactly do these new threats — and possible solutions — mean for our watershed?

Join the Coalition for a happy hour presentation and conversation with CFC board member and Executive Director of the Flathead Basin Commission (FBC) Caryn Miske. Miske will share her extensive knowledge of the threat and spread of invasive mussels, discuss what’s at stake in the Clark Fork watershed, and bring you up to speed on the recommendations before your representatives and how you can take action to protect our waters.
