About Us

The Watershed Education Network (WEN) started in 1996 as a volunteer effort. After two years of running students to the river between jobs, we acquired a start-up grant from the Environmental Protection Agency. Seventeen years later, WEN is now the watershed education hub of western Montana, offering monitoring instruction to citizen scientists, professional workshops, and experiential education programs to local schools.


Program coordinator, Rebecca Paquette will be leading fall Stream Team – our weekend citizen science program of local stream data collection. Please contact WEN to volunteer for our Sunday afternoon hearty crew of Stream Team volunteers. Call 541-9287 or email: water@montanawatershed.org

Interested in Volunteering?

2014: This fall we will be leading 3 Stream Monitoring Trainings for community members, students and neighbors to learn how to collect data on their local streams. After additional orientations, volunteers can assist WEN staff and interns as we lead K-12 students on field trips. Please RSVP for any training by emailing: water@montanawatershed.org
