Community-based education is an essential way to make connections between different sectors of the community and build knowledge and support of the Council. It is also a way for community members to get to know each other and to form a network of residents united by similar interests.
We strive to connect with the community through a variety of outreach efforts that will satisfy the interests and needs of a diversity of people. Workshops help inform and advise landowners on how to protect water sources, control invasive species and noxious weeds, and prevent stream bank erosion. Informative and fun hikes into the watershed educate a wide audience on the unique resources of the Middle Fork. Family-friendly restoration projects like tree plantings and riverbank cleanups help unite civic service with watershed protection.
