This week’s “Clean Water is Life!” Art Contest winner is Lexi Burgess, a seventh-grader at Victor Middle School.

“Water Month” activities have been popular with the community so far. The next volunteer event is on Sunday, April 22 from noon to 4 p.m. in celebration of Earth Day. The group will be planting around 100 native plants along the East Fork of the Bitterroot riverbank and throwing a commemorative barbecue. Some folks will likely be fishing as well. Call (406) 375-2272 if you would like more information.

There also seems to be a lot of excitement around the presentation by the Bureau of Mines and Geology on Tuesday, April 24 at 6 p.m. at the Bitterroot National Forest, 1801 N. First St., Hamilton. They will be addressing a lot of concerns about local senior water rights and the state of groundwater in the Bitterroot Valley.
