Partnering with the Oxbow Cattle Company near Missoula

On Miller Creek, an overly warm and sediment-laden stream just south of Missoula, the Water Forum is proudly partnering with Bart and Wendy Morris.  They are the owners of the Oxbow Cattle Company, a local grass-fed beef operation on Lower Miller Creek.

The Morrises have a passion for their work and a vision for the landscape.


The restoration project along Miller Creek includes fencing to protect the streambank and regrow the land along the stream.   More than 450 native plants were also planted along the streambanks in the newly protected areas giving the natural recruitment a much needed boost.  

Work began in the fall of 2018 and continued into 2019 with additional fencing and plantings.
