Voice of the River

Gallatin River Task Force Member Spotlight: Joanna McCoy

This month’s Gallatin River Task Force Member Spotlight: Joanna McCoy gained her deep affection for the outdoors from her father, and from growing up on a dairy farm on the Little Sandy River in Kentucky. Opportunities through college courses and experiences along the eastern seaboard perpetuated her love of learning about how to keep creeks and rivers healthy. Joanna and her husband have spent more than 35 years in Big Sky and their love of the Gallatin has been a foundation for them both since the very beginning.

Whether fishing, sitting quietly, or painting her favorite scenes along the Gallatin (Joanna is also a full time landscape artist), the inspiration of the river has been a constant. With an interest in protecting the river, Joanna found her way to volunteering for the Task Force, where shared values with the staff and board became apparent.

Thank you Joanna McCoy!

Her admiration of the organization’s resilience to find solutions for ecological challenges facing the Gallatin is what keeps Joanna engaged as a supporter. Thank you, Joanna! We look forward to more years ahead with your support.

We look forward to your ongoing support and involvement in the future, Joanna!
