Friends of 2 Rivers
A citizens' organization committed to promoting a safe, healthy and enriching environment for the communities at the confluence of the Clark Fork and Blackfoot Rivers.
Many people feel motivated to get involved during this legislative session. The Montana Environmental Information Center is sponsoring Citizen Lobby Days on Feb. 22 and March 17 in Helena. From the MEIC website:
Please join us on February 22nd for our second Citizen Lobby Day during the 2017 legislative session. You’ll receive an exclusive training from policy experts in the conservation community on lobbying and a briefing on our priority issues. We’ll focus on critical legislation affecting clean energy, the Smith River, clean air, climate change, and land use.
At our lobby day members and supporters will join friends and members from other conservation groups for a training starting in the morning in Helena. Then we will head up to the Capitol for lunch with legislators, and one-on-one appointments and hearings in the afternoon.
The Milltown State Park Bluff Overlook is open and offers hiking opportunities on the floodplain trails on the south side of the Clark Fork River. Picnic tables on the bluff are the perfect place for a summer picnic. Download the map at the Milltown State Park website, follow the link Trails Map.

Her love of nature, animals, science, and education prompted her to create the world’s first cyber ranch where live web cameras bring Dunrovin’s wildlife and ranch life to internet users across the globe."
