This site offers information on some of the remarkable plants that are found in riparian areas, tips for ensuring water quality and links to resources for additional help. Healthy riparian areas and clean water add immeasurably to our quality of life in Western Montana. Let's keep it that way by being RiverSmart.

RiverSmart Montana is an educational partnership of six western Montana counties, aimed at highlighting the important role riparian areas (streamside or lakeside areas of native plants and trees) play in keeping our rivers clean.
