BHWC held its first virtual public board meeting on Wednesday, August 19th, 2020 via Zoom. The meeting included committee updates, project reports, and the premiere of our newest film, Holding Back the Snowpack (below).
The Zoom recording* can be viewed here:
*Please note: As this was our first virtual meeting, we started recording a little late, so the video begins during the snowpack report. Missing from the recording is the introduction by our Executive Director, Pedro Marques. We will do a better job of recording next time! We are still learning “how to Zoom”.
Meeting minutes are available here: August 2020 Meeting Minutes
Also, be sure to check out our latest film, Holding Back the Snowpack!
About the film: The Big Hole Watershed Committee collaborates with a variety of partners to create life-giving wetlands in SW Montana. Taking cues from flood irrigation and beavers, natural water storage projects help us adapt to climate change by slowing spring runoff and soaking the soil sponge. The film highlights our pro-active work to increase the availability of water for all uses by making the most of abundant winter snowpack.
