The Living on the Bank project uses education to address natural resource concerns that arise from property management decisions along rivers. The program provides guidance for landowners when buying, selling, developing, or improving property in order to reduce development in areas vulnerable to flooding and erosion. Information regarding taxes and rules, stream dynamics, selecting construction sites, bank stability, property improvements, wildlife interactions, noxious weeds, aquatic invasive species, livestock, and fire for an audience of landowners along rivers and realtors is shared through educational materials and the Living on the Banks website. We believe spreading knowledge of these topics will help reduce economic impacts associated with invasive species and protect the ecological vitality that makes Montana rivers such valuable places to live and recreate.
