The Upper Missouri Watershed Alliance (UMOWA) would like to invite the public to the annual members meeting and barbecue to be held April 29th 2016 at the Craig fire hall in Craig Montana. Rocky Harbor of the Deerborn Ranch will be barbecuing with the serving to begin at 6:00. The program will start at 7:00
Speaking on the program will be Dave Stagliano who will give a rundown on UMOWA’s 2015 Aquatic bug sampling project. He will also provide a look at the 2016 bug project which will expand into a water sampling project as well.
Craig McLane from Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks (FWP) will talk about aquatic plants and invasive species in the Missouri River. UMOWA is planning to implement a plant sampling program for 2016 with the support of FWP.
Filling out the program will be the annual fisheries shocking and fish count report for the Missouri river from Holter Dam to Cascade and the state of the Canyon Ferry Fishery. This is always a highlight of the program as it will give us an idea of what to expect of the fishery for the coming year.
On Saturday the 30th we will be giving a bug and water sampling demonstration. That will be a chance for you to get some hands on experience. For more information for either the meeting or the sampling demonstration call 406-431-5084
This region of Montana is proud to be home of one of the most unique and productive natural resources in America. This event will give you a chance to show your support for the preservation and improvement of the Missouri river.
