The Gallatin River Task Force hosted a continuing education course developed for Big Sky realtors on September 20th, 2016. The goal of the course was to empower realtors with relevant water resources information to pass on to landowners to help make wise land and water use decisions.
Speakers elaborated on topics ranging from the nuts and bolts of conservation easements to proper well and septic care and maintenance. Course participants received four elective credits from the Montana Board of Realty Regulation.
Cathy Gorman, a career realtor in Big Sky, enthusiastically noted, “(This course) was the best four hours of education that I have received in over 25 years.”
After a successful first year, the Task Force hopes to host the 4-credit course in spring 2017. For more information about future courses, contact: Stephanie Lynn, firstname.lastname@example.org or #993-2519.
“Conserving Land and Protecting Water in Big Sky” was taught in partnership with the Big Sky County Water and Sewer District, Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology, Gallatin-Big Sky Weed Committee, City of Bozeman, TerraQuatics, and Gallatin Valley Land Trust. This course would not be possible without the support of the Big Sky Area Resort Tax District.
