Big Blackfoot Riverkeeper
This local organization helps preserve and protect our local backyard amenity, the Big Blackfoot River.  The river snakes 75 miles from the headwaters in Lincoln, MT to its confluence with the Clark Fork River at Milltown.  The river was made famous by Norman MacLeans novella, A River Runs Through It.
  

BBRK is working with Montana, Fish, Wildlife & Parks to establish the Big Blackfoot River Trail, a series of reservatio-only campsites dedicated to float-in camping.  These willl have no vehicle access, and will require recreationists to practice complete pack in/pack out, zero impact campcraft.  They are also working to initiate an aquatic insect baseline census on the river.

Volunteer opportunities available!
