Watershed Capacity Building Projects
High Divide Capacity Project. MWCC has assisted with the development and execution of the “Building Capacity for Successful Community-Based Conservation.” This Project is a partnership between Sustainable Northwest, Future West, and multiple watershed groups throughout the state. MWCC members have directly participated in the project while non participating groups have also been able to take advantage of capacity building funding opportunities and project training events. MWCC specifically assisted in program design and trainings. For more information about the Project click here or see the Project Facebook Page.
Bureau of Land Management Capacity Funding Project. MWCC is in a six year partnership with the BLM to fund capacity projects that support enhanced working relationships between the BLM and neighboring communities. See the funding announcement here.
MWCC is actively seeking opportunities to pass through capacity funding to support watershed partners. As these opportunities become available, MWCC will notify partners and post relevant opportunities on the funding section of the webpage. If you have an idea for a way that MWCC may assist you in accomplishing your vision, contact our Executive Director, Erin Farris-Olsen. Read more about our progress in building capacity.
The Big Sky Watershed Corps Program is a partnership between Soil & Water Conservation Districts of Montana, Montana Conservation Corps, and Montana Watershed Coordination Council. MWCC and it’s partners recruit and support watershed groups to host an AmeriCorps Service Member to provide direct service in your watershed for an 11 month term. Read more
MWCC staff are available to provide defined services that build organizational capacity of watershed groups at a reduced market rate. Read more about becoming a partner.
