Who We Are

At its core, Big Sky Watershed Corps is an AmeriCorps program that assists Montana’s watershed communities to make a measurable difference in local conservation efforts while strengthening the experience of young professionals.
The program is an AmeriCorps program and offered through a partnership of https://www.mtcorps.org/“>Montana Conservation Corps, https://www.mtwatersheds.org/“>Montana Watershed Coordination Council and https://macdnet.org/“>Montana Association of Conservation Districts.
