Big news! Our very own Jen Downing, Executive Director of the Big Hole Watershed Committee for the last 6+ years, has been awarded the 2019 Montana Watershed Stewardship Award! This is a big deal – the award is only given out every other year to two individuals and/or groups out of the whole state – and boy does Jen deserve it!

At BHWC’s November 2018 monthly meeting, BHWC Restoration Programs Manager presented information regarding BHWC’s restoration projects. His presentation included the first showing of the newly released French Gulch Restoration film.
We are very proud to release this short documentary on our work to restore the French Gulch and Moose Creek tributaries of the Big Hole River. After 150 years of intensive gold mining, French Gulch now flows freely in its last 3 miles, thanks to a major restoration project undertaken by the Big Hole Watershed Committee in partnership with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
