Protecting one of Montana's Most Valuable Resources

Our mission is to protect, enhance, and understand the unique recreational and ecological resources of the Upper Missouri River.

ABOUT UMOWA

The Upper Missouri River Watershed Alliance (UMOWA) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit conservation organization created in 2014 by local citizens concerned for the health and future of the Upper Missouri River watershed.   Comprised of sportsmen, landowners, farmers and ranchers, UMOWA focuses its efforts and research on the Missouri River and its tributaries from its source at Three Forks Forks—downstream to the Black Eagle dam near Great Falls, MT. We work closely with governmental agencies, power companies, sportsmen’s groups and like-minded conservation organizations to better understand and protect this important and special ecosystem.

The UPPER MISSOURI RIVER WATERSHED

The protection and enhancement of the Upper Missouri watershed is of absolute vital importance to the recreation and economic well being all users.

The past 35 years has brought significant changes to the Upper Missouri Watershed. Driven by an apparent increase in nutrients from upstream sources the aquatic environment has transformed dramatically.

UMOWA’S commitment to the long term health of this watershed is only beginning. Our mission will be expanding as we mature as an organization and our resources expand.
