If you have been a part of the Bitter Root Water Forum for a while you have seen many of Heather's accomplishments through the work of the Water Forum.
Here are just a few:
- growing the organization to three full-time staff and an AmeriCorps member to get more done for the Bitterroot
- helping create education opportunities like the Irrigation in the Bitterroot Tour
- contributing to the restoration of over 20 miles of stream!
The MWCC commented that they awarded her special recognition because her work has provided "direct benefits to the Bitterroot River and the communities that rely on it".
Congratulations to Heather for this achievement!
