FLATHEAD WATERSHED AREAS — The Flathead Basin Commission, the Flathead Conservation District, the Flathead Rivers Alliance, the Flathead Lakers, and the Lake County Conservation District are co-hosting a cleanup event in the Flathead Watershed. The 2022 Flathead Waters Cleanup Event is a volunteer event to clean up trash in and around the waterbodies in the basin, including both Flathead and Lake Counties. 

Individuals or teams of volunteers will sign up to collect trash and clean up any section of river, lake, creek, or pond. When they register, volunteers can select the area of interest to clean up through an interactive mapping feature on the event website. This will enable organizers to ensure that there is no replication and to track where cleanup efforts are taking place.

The event will take place on Saturday, Aug.13 from 9 a.m.– 3 p.m., with a celebratory afterparty and prize giveaway hosted at Sacred Waters Brewing from 4-8 p.m. The first 40 volunteers to fill out the registration survey will receive a meal voucher to be used at Sacred Eats during the afterparty. Prizes from our sponsors include: a half-day guided fly fishing trip, an evening sailing cruise, half-day rafting trips, camping gear, fly fishing gear, and tons of swag. Prizes will be given to the volunteers that collect the most trash, find the most unique item(s), or submit the best photo. To be eligible for prizes, all volunteers must register prior to the event by visiting the event website, or by contacting Emilie Henry by phone at 406-461-6831 or email at: Link to website: Link to Facebook event:
