Our Mission

The Watershed Education Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering knowledge, appreciation and awareness of watershed health through science and outreach.

Since 1996, we have met our mission by providing river education programs  and field science experiences to children and adults throughout western Montana. 


Hello friends of WEN, 

As you know, our mission is to foster knowledge, appreciation and awareness of watershed health through science and outreach. We at the WEN office have been taking some time to listen and reflect. From this reflection, it is clear that our commitment to outreach, inclusivity, and growth is more important than ever. For WEN, this means proactively striving for inclusivity by: 

1) Continuing to prioritize reaching underserved students with our School Stream Monitoring programs.

2) Continuing to enthusiastically welcome diversity on our Citizen Science Stream Team. 

3) Improving our engagement with a diverse community of members, volunteers, and partners. 

4) Regularly examining our internal policies. 

While our office is only open by appointment, we are looking forward to when we can be in the stream together, as equals.
