The Upper Clark Fork Advisory Council will meet in Deer Lodge on Oct. 28 and Nov. 4
to consider and vote on 13 project proposals seeking to restore or replace lost natural resources in the basin.
The citizen council reviews grant applications made to the Natural Resource Damage Program and makes funding recommendation to the governor, who makes the ultimate decision. Projects can be submitted by agencies, organizations and individuals and must improve water, fish and wildlife resources, public drinking water supplies or natural resource-based recreational opportunities such as hunting, fishing, hiking and wildlife watching.
Some of the 13 projects have undergone substantial revisions since they were originally proposed in March. ( View them here. ) The council will vote on Nov. 4 on its recommendations, which are then passed on to the NRDP Trustees for consideration and then on to the governor for final approval.
The council will meet on the 28th and the 4th at the Deer Lodge Community Center at 1 p.m. For more info, see the agenda for Oct. 28 meeting.
