BHWC held its 2nd virtual public board meeting on Wednesday, September 16th, 2020 via Zoom. The meeting included committee updates, project reports, and more. Gary Burnett and Cole Mannix with Heart of the Rockies Initiative joined us to gauge BHWC’s interest in hosting meetings (whether virtually or in-person) to gather landowner input on wildlife migration.

Also, be sure to check out our latest film, Beaver Mimicry in Action!
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.
