Clark Fork Coalition

Who We Are

For three decades, the Clark Fork Coalition has worked to restore and sustain the Clark Fork and its tributaries, ensuring it can flow with clean, cold, and abundant waters for generations to come. We are science-based and community-driven, as evidenced by our genesis in 1985: dozens of community members banded together to stop a pulp and paper mill  from dumping pollution into the Clark Fork River downstream of Missoula.

Since then, we’ve continued to apply scientific, technical, legal, and educational expertise to address the challenges faced by our rivers, as well as to advance the tremendous restoration opportunities now unfolding throughout the watershed.

What We Do

The Clark Fork Coalition exists to ensure the people, fish, and wildlife of the Clark Fork basin have clean water and healthy rivers. It’s a simple as that. Without those basics, fish and wildlife cannot thrive, our communities cannot be sustained, and our businesses and industries cannot succeed.
