On Saturday, September 10, Montana BHA teamed up with Madison-Gallatin Trout Unlimited and the Madison River Foundation to remove trash from the Madison River. Volunteers on foot and in their drift boats, kayaks and rafts leant a hand to clean up sections of river above Ennis and below Bear Trap Canyon.
Trash bags were full to bursting, volunteers were tired but happy, and we laughed in bewilderment over the odd things found in the cleanup like a crockpot, a river tube and a spare tire! A big thanks to our dedicated volunteers, Montana FWP and local BLM staff for joining, and Protect our River Org and the MSU Backcountry Squatters for pitching in to help! We'll see you at next year's annual clean up!
