About WEN


Our Mission

WEN’s mission is to foster knowledge, appreciation and awareness of watershed health through science and outreach.

We meet our mission by providing river ecology knowledge and field science experiences to children and young adults throughout western Montana. 

We are growing the next generation of watershed stewards!

Our programs are aligned with current state and national standards. 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.
