The Lolo Watershed Group (LWG) is a community-based nonprofit organization that is working to conserve and restore the Lolo Creek watershed. Our goal is to enhance aquatic habitat and natural in-stream and stream-side characteristics while preserving traditional uses of the watershed resources. ?By Laws [NEW]


History:?The LWG was founded in 2003 by a group of landowners in the watershed who were concerned about a variety of issues stemming from past and present land uses. Those landowners wanted to to see a results-driven collaborative effort to restore and conserve the watershed, thus LWG was created.


Mission Statement:? Our mission is to understand and conserve the unique characteristics of the Lolo Creek watershed, including its wildlife and fisheries, scenic and rural character, local agriculture, and recreational opportunities while supporting private property and water rights.
