Educating Tomorrow's Scientists and Change-Makers Today
Preserving a Billion-Dollar Legacy
Join Us in Sustaining Environmental Stewardship and STEM Education
At CFWEP, we've witnessed the transformation of the Clark Fork Watershed through the billion-dollar restoration efforts. Now, our challenge is to ensure this legacy never fades and continues to inspire generations of change-makers, problem-solvers, and conservation-minded citizens.

CFWEP: A Beacon of Environmental Education
Located at Montana Technological University, CFWEP is in its 20th year of expanding environmental literacy and stewardship through field-based science and research experiences. We take learning beyond the classroom, immersing students in the revitalized Clark Fork Watershed, where they learn directly from scientists and community leaders.
Bridging the Gap with STEM Education
Our innovative programs and partnerships with Montana Tech's Biology and Environmental Engineering Departments, reach students statewide. This outreach provides important recruitment for Montana Tech, as the program partners travel extensively throughout the state of Montana.
Diverse Programs, Endless Impact
Our programs, from fly fishing camps to community clean-up days, enrich students, teachers, and the community. To date, we've engaged over 79,000 students and served 929 teachers across 48 Montana communities. We've earned 16 national and regional awards and shared our best practices in education research journals.
Shining a Light on Tomorrow's Scientists
Recognized as a Program of Distinction by Montana Tech, CFWEP is a powerful tool for student engagement and recruitment. We cultivate scientifically literate citizens and prepare tomorrow's problem-solvers, guiding them toward STEM, post-secondary education, and Montana Technological University.
Impact. Reach. Excellence. Sustainability.
Every gift counts, and your generosity ensures we continue our mission to provide excellent programming for Montana students.
