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.


Please help WEN meet our two challenge grants! You can make your $50 gift become $100 for WEN!

Thank you Cinnabar Foundation for the $2,000 matching grant! This support makes our water education programs happen with only modest program fees charged to our schools and Flagship programs.
