Our Projects

Collecting scientific data in order to understand the Missouri Watershed and influence the factors that impact the health and future of the river.

Our projects have included evidence-based scientific studies designed to focus on the health and viability of the Upper Missouri river. To date, we have concentrated on three major issues: identifying and documenting the aquatic plant life from Holter dam to Cascade, the viability of the insect life in the river, and analysis of the river’s water chemistry and quality.
