On a beautiful late summer Sunday, the public had its first chance to view cleanup and restoration work on the Clark Fork and Blackfoot Rivers at the 5th annual Community Day at the Confluence.
More than a 100 people attended the afternoon celebration, some just to see the river and others to listen to speakers talk about raptors and bighorns in the area, and of course, the restoration work now underway. The Watershed Education Network's table hands-on environmental ed was a hit with the kids, young and old alike. Live music played throughout the afternoon and burger and sausages as well as locally grown corn and melons were enjoyed by many.
Check out the slideshow for photos of the event and the confluence itself.
The area, still closed to general public use because of ongoing construction work, was opened on August 30 by the state for the day for the community event put on by the Friends of Two Rivers.
