Growing up in Missoula I have spent my childhood and lifetime by the water. When I was in school - elementary through high school, I learned so much about our riparian system, on water monitoring field trips with Watershed Education Network (WEN). During my time as UM undergraduate student, I volunteered to assist in educating kids on these WEN field trips. Now, after a few years off, I am returning to the WEN Stream Team as an AmeriCorps member this summer. I am so excited to continue my river stewardship ethic, connecting with the Missoula community and a new generation of future water stewards!
