The Watershed Education Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing river ecology knowledge and field science experiences to children and young adults throughout western Montana, with a record of over 18 years of success serving local public schools and the University of Montana.  Our programs are aligned with current state and national standards. By now, thousands of students have discovered the natural laboratories right in their own backyards through the efforts of our committed staff and volunteers.  We reach rural and under-served schools through our programs, taking broad science concepts and connecting them to places students know, often within walking distance of their classrooms.
