Each year, MWCC hosts an annual meeting to provide updates on our programs and resources to partners, as well as provide opportunities for the collaborative conservation community to connect and learn. At this year’s meeting, MWCC and our partners will provide information about federal funding initiatives aimed at supporting watershed health efforts in Montana. Additionally, we will share MWCC’s accomplishments from 2021 and report on upcoming activities that will support watershed communities in 2022.
