Montana Tech and Clark Fork Watershed Education Program have received $100,000 for a two-year grant to expand environmental literacy and stewardship across Montana.

CFWEP, along with the campus and community partners, will deliver a comprehensive, two-year program for teachers within rural, Superfund-affected communities of western Montana.

The groups will provide authentic summer environmental research experiences for students in targeted school districts. They will mentor teachers on community project development, addressing issues of safe and clean water and land revitalization. They will use Butte’s outdoor laboratory, Montana’s Superfund site to illustrate methods for both teachers and students on water quality monitoring, stormwater management, soil remediation, and climate resiliency. Through community projects, their program engages teachers and students, as well as the general public, in stewardship and education of their local environment and issues.
