Clark Fork Coalition looking for a few good volunteers for 'stream corps
February 21, 2013
Editor@montanaliving.com

(Missoula, MT) - The Clark Fork Coalition (CFC) will host a volunteer training on Thursday, March 7, from 5-7pm at the Clark Fork Coalition offices in downtown Missoula at 140 S. 4th St. West. This free event is open to the public and will launch CFC’s new “Volunteer Stream Corps,” which aims to provide meaningful volunteer projects, training, and restoration-themed activities to interested river residents once a month during the spring, summer and fall.



At the training, CFC staff will introduce volunteers to the basics of watershed health, offer a brief history of the Coalition and its mission, update participants on CFC’s restoration program, and explain how members of the “Volunteer Stream Corps” will help make a real, on-the-ground difference for waterways in the Clark Fork River basin.



“We’re tremendously excited to launch our Volunteer Stream Corps,” said Jill Alban, CFC Outreach Director. “On-the-ground projects are ultimately how we protect and restore the river. But streams can’t fix themselves—it takes a lot of knowledgeable people in the field to get the work done. We’re looking forward to connecting hundreds of residents to a wide array of volunteer projects that will improve the health and well-being of rivers and streams in western Montana.”



At the training, participants will also learn more about how to get involved in specific upcoming volunteer events, including a snowpack monitoring session in the northern Bitterroot basin in March, the annual Clark Fork River Clean-up scheduled for April 20, and various revegetation and restoration projects slated to take place throughout the Clark Fork basin this spring and summer.



The volunteer training on March 7 is free and open to the public, and volunteers of all ages are encouraged to participate. Visit the volunteer page at www.clarkfork.org for directions to the training, to learn more about the Volunteer Stream Corps, or to take a volunteer survey. For additional details and information, please contact CFC at (406) 542-0539, ext. 212.
