Marias River Watershed Quarterly Meeting In April

The Marias River Watershed will meet hold their quarterly meeting at the Marias River Electric building in Shelby on April 9, 2013, at 1:00 p.m.

A wide range of interesting topics will be offered for discussion.  Duane Walker of Walker Design Group, Great Falls, will provide an overview of the re-designed watershed website (www.mariasriver.com).   The public is encouraged to visit this site and offer comments/suggestions/ideas.  If you are unable to attend the meeting, comments may be sent to the Toole County Conservation District or emailed to marlene.moon@mt.nacdnet.net

Other speakers will include Anne Stephens, Browning NRCS and Ardis Day Rider, Blackfeet Environmental Office.   Both will be giving updates on what’s going on in Blackfeet Country!  Connie Jacobs, BLM Missouri Breaks Interpretive Center, will speak on the center’s educational programs and the river trips made with students on both the Upper Missouri and Marias Rivers.

Other items of business will be a discussion on the proposed float trip on the Marias River being planned for this summer.  This is a popular event that is sponsored by the Marias River Basin Weed Control Association, and supported by the watershed.  More news of this event will be available by the end of March.

The public is invited to attend this meeting and any other quarterly meetings of the watershed.  Questions can be directed to Marlene Moon at the email address above or by calling the Toole County CD at 406-434-5234 ext. 113.
