Big Sky Watershed Corps

About Big Sky Watershed Corps

Big Sky Watershed Corps is an Americorps program that places young professionals in Montana watershed communities where they make a measurable difference in local conservation efforts. BSWC is currently beginning its  fourth year and has been a huge success within the state, with members making strides in watershed research, project planning and implementation, watershed education and outreach, and community engagement.

This program is an awesome opportunity: it allows young professionals to work closely with a watershed community, implement specialized projects, and provide foundational assistance within their assigned organizations.

BSWC is offered through a partnership with the Soil and Water Conservation Districts of Montana, Montana Conservation Corps, and the Montana Watershed Coordination Council.
