Volunteers dive in to restore stream bank
Much of Hamilton’s charm and vitality is from the beautiful Bitterroot River flowing through the community.
Hamilton River Park is a favorite area providing safe walking, play areas, summer time picnics, dog walking, and fishing. Yet one of the stream banks on the north side of the park has been experiencing significant erosion, which lowers water quality, harms the aquatic life, and fills in fish spawning habitat.
On Thursday, the Bitter Root Water Forum, in partnership with the City of Hamilton and community volunteers, restored a portion of the stream bank.
