Aided by a $1.2 million grant, Trout Unlimited and Missoula County will tackle another summer of restoration work within the Ninemile watershed, where they continue to chip away at damage left by past mining activity.
Joined by the Lolo National Forest, Trout Unlimited has led the seven-year restoration effort to reclaim the watershed, stretching from the Ninemile mainstem up to the tributaries that provide vital habitat for spawning fish and other aquatic species.
“We’re looking forward to getting started on it,” said Paul Parsons, the Middle Clark Fork restoration coordinator for Trout Unlimited. “It will start downstream from the work we completed last summer. Hopefully we’ll start work in June.”
