Why be River Smart?


The Clark Fork River is a treasured resource that enhances our quality of life in Missoula. Whether we run or walk beside it, spend time with our families and pets in the parks along it, fly fish, kayak, raft or surf Brennan’s wave, we all enjoy having the Clark Fork River running through the heart of Missoula.

This is why we all have a responsibility to care for the Clark Fork and to ensure it’s still just as vibrant for generations to come. Read below to learn how you can play a part in a healthy Clark Fork River and please contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Let’s be River Smart together and keep the Clark Fork beautiful!
