Welcome to
watershed citizen science


Volunteers make the WEN world go round. Join us in the stream or from the comfort of your own home working on Stream Team data.

Our mission

WEN’s mission is to foster knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of watershed health through citizen science, youth and school engagement, and outreach to our communities.



We could not do what what we do without the support of donors and grantors. Your support helps WEN provide field experience through citizen science stream monitoring and education programs for students.   


Black Water
August 2-8, 2021

As described by Montana Fish, Wildlife, & Parks:

"Watercraft inspection stations are the first line of defense to protect Montana’s water from the harmful impacts of aquatic invasive species. Inspectors are trained to examine a wide variety of motorized and non-motorized boats, some with complex internal systems and ballast tanks that need special consideration to inspect and decontaminate. They follow a check list to ensure all watercraft are free of invasive plants, animals and standing water."
