Preservation and Restoration
UMOWA is working with local landowners, private businesses, and public agencies to stabilize the river banks along the Missouri River. Bank stabilization will decrease erosion and the building up of sediments downriver. By encouraging the growth of woody plants and roots, and by narrowing the access points used by animals to access the water, UMOWA seeks to improve the environmental health of the river for the long term.

Boat Wash Stations
This last summer, MT FWP discovered the first invasive quagga mussels in Montana. UMOWA has begun a response to the crisis with a plan to install the first boat wash station in the region in Craig. The wash station will be in the Trout Shop parking lot and is will be operational in the summer of 2018. We will develop an educational program to inform river users about the importance of proper cleaning of their boats to prevent the spread of invasive species.
