A program at Montana Tech in Butte received a big boost from the state.
The Governor's Trustees Restoration Council awarded the Clark Fork Watershed Restoration Program more than $750,000 and extended its contract through the 2014 fiscal year.
“This is a celebration in recognition of the state of Montana making another commitment to our program because of the importance of the things we do, but more importantly the quality in which we do it,” said Matt Vincent the program's director.
It has been a leading provider of environmental and restoration education programs and services in Western Montana since 2005.
The program specifically looks at Butte and Anaconda's mining history and the science behind restoring the upper Clark Fork Basin
