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.


Welcome WEN’s new program coordinator, Rebecca Paquette, she comes to us from Maine with a solid outdoor background and a Zoology degree.
