Our Vision: a healthy Gallatin River Watershed for future generations.
The Blue Water Task Force is thrilled to announce that we have changed our name to the Gallatin River Task Force, effective immediately. The name change was initiated to clarify the role that the Task Force plays in conserving water resources in the Gallatin Watershed. In addition, we have refined our mission to a more simple and accessible expression of the collective intention of our organization to work collaboratively on water issues in our community.
Our Mission: to partner with our community to inspire stewardship of the Gallatin River Watershed.
The Gallatin River Task Force will continue to be a leader in preserving water quality and quantity in the Upper Gallatin. We will maintain our core programs: water quality monitoring, education and outreach, watershed assessment, and watershed restoration. However, we hope to build our capacity to meet the growing needs of the Gallatin. A new website and logo, that will be launched soon, will reflect the Gallatin River Task Force’s new identity.
The Gallatin River Task Force Board of Directors reached a consensus in late March during a day long strategic planning retreat at Lone Mountain Ranch and moved to approve the name change at our board meeting in early April. The board’s discussion was motivated by the desire for our name to provide a direct tie to the Gallatin River and to create a clearer connection to our conservation mission.
