Title: Once upon a time

The Milltown Dam
Milltown Dam Tying it All
What is a Watershed?
  • A drainage basin funneling all its water into a
    network of streams that all flow to a larger body
    of water.

The Upper Clark Fork drainage is a sub-drainage
to the Columbia River, which eventually ends up
in the Pacific Ocean.

Restoration - Its not just a word, its a Mission
Silver Bow Watershed Restoration Mission Statement
  • In the 21st Century, the Silver Bow Creek
    Watershed is a vibrant place to live, work and
    recreate. The watershed is protected from
    adverse impacts of mining contamination. The
    restored watershed supports viable,
    self-sustaining communities of fish, wildlife and
    vegetation and high-quality water resources.
    Native species are maintained and restored where
    practicable. The watersheds healthy ecosystem
    provides for quality education and balanced
    recreation, contributing to a diverse and
    sustainable economy, improved aesthetics and
    community well-being. Stable and healthy local
    communities of informed citizens actively protect
    the watersheds resources.

Whose Mission is it?
What can I do to help?
  • Make scientific observations and record them
  • Do a science project help spread scientific
  • Stay informed about what is being done read
    newspapers, visit restoration sites
  • Talk to people about the watershed and about what
    you observe there
  • Go to public meetings, listen, and eventually
    speak up
