Riverfest Days

Riverfest in the Root is BRWF's annual festival to celebrate the river and educate the community about our watershed. It is a free event featuring fun for all ages with live exotic animal presentation from Animal Wonders, fun kid stations like a splash zone obstacle course, bouncy castle, and art stations. Plus live music, food, and beer!

The Run for the River 5K is a unique race to benefit BRWF. The course is complete with secret super-soaker agents that might inspire you to pick up the pace. Come out for this one of a kind experience in the Bitterroot Valley!

Each year, volunteers for BRWF pull thousands of pounds of trash out of the Bitterroot River. Volunteers are assigned stretches of the river from Sula and Painted Rocks to the confluence at the Clark Fork in Missoula.
