MISSOULA –

Students met with officials from the Montana Department of Transportation after school Thursday to learn how the construction of bridges affects Montana’s protected bull trout.

Around 20 students met at the California Street Bridge, where MDT officials explained to them how they’re careful with construction projects to better protect this endangered fish species.

Experts with MDT gathered with students in Missoula Park and Recreation’s After School Outdoor Adventures Program.
