The Watershed Corps member serves a 10-month term from January to November and assists LCCD staff primarily with natural resource conservation education and outreach.  Some of the programming our BSWC members have  helped develop in the past include: delivering  high-quality outreach to youth through our Augmented Reality Sandbox, Junior Conservationist Programs, and the Boys and Girls Club community garden.  Our members have expanded our landowner conservation initiatives, planed and ran our pollinator seed program.

Several of our member also works closely with local LCCD partners including the Flathead Lake Biological Station on Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) early detection efforts on Flathead Lake and NRCS on seedings and studies and cost share programs.

Along with these practical work experiences this program is also an opportunity for college graduates to gain valuable professional skills while working with current Natural Resources professionals.
