Join MWCC as a Supporting Member
Our work promoting healthy and productive landscapes throughout Montana’s watersheds wouldn’t be possible without the support of our numerous partners across the state. Now is your opportunity to formally join our efforts by becoming a Supporting Member. Joining MWCC as a Supporter allows us to continue expanding the services and resources we provide to watershed conservation efforts statewide, while also offering some unique member benefits. We encourage you to check out all of the individuals, organizations, and agencies who we partnered with in 2020 (click here), and we invite you to sign up at anytime to join us in 2021. Here are some of the activities your support provides:
- Funding – The MWCC Watershed Fund provides financial support to groups across the state for project implementation, organizational capacity, and professional development. In 2020, we provided more than $215,000 to 28 communities.
- Peer-to-Peer Learning & Networking – Our events (e.g., Watershed Symposium, Annual Meeting, Watershed Day, Fall Watershed Tour, etc.) connect watershed organizations, landowners, agencies, non-profits, researchers, and funders to create opportunities for learning, networking, and relationship building.
- Big Sky Watershed Corps Support – For the last 10 years, we have worked in partnership to provide funding, training, and mentoring to members and host sites in the Big Sky Watershed Corps program
- Information Sharing – Our biweekly Watershed Newsletter contains a collection of statewide highlights related to land and water conservation and provides up-to-date information about funding, careers, events, and other topics within the watershed community.
- Sharing and Promoting Accomplishments – We work with local partners to develop stories and materials (e.g., Watershed Stories, State of the Watersheds Report, etc.) that convey the importance of locally-led watershed conservation efforts and highlight on-the-ground successes.
- Representing the Watershed Approach – MWCC works with agencies and NGOs at the statewide, regional, and national level to act as a collective voice for locally-led approaches to conservation in Montana.
