Montana Wetland Council

Montana's overarching wetland goal is: No overall net loss of the state's remaining wetland resource base (as of 1989) and an overall increase in the quality and quantity of wetlands in Montana. Montana has created strategic 5-year frameworks (2008-20122013-2017) to prioritize and direct collective efforts on wetlands and riparian area conservation and restoration in pursuit of its goal.  The Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), the lead state agency for wetland protection, has chosen a collaborative approach involving the Montana Wetland Council, to develop and help implement the state wetland plan.

The Montana Wetland Council is an active network of diverse interest that works cooperatively to conserve and restore Montana's wetlands and riparian ecosystems.

Montana Wetland Stewardship Awards are presented by the Montana Wetlands Council to recognize individuals that contribute to the conservation of wetlands and are awarded once every two years.
