Partners Tour @ Bruce Andre
WHO WE ARE
Our story began in the early 1970s, when landowners along the Blackfoot River started gathering community support for conservation and sharing the resource through public and private partnerships. At the time, which was a far-sighted idea, especially in a state known for its rugged individualism. But the consensus approach was so effective that in 1993, they officially formed the Blackfoot Challenge. Our mission: to coordinate efforts that conserve and enhance the natural resources and rural way of life throughout the watershed. For more on our history ….

Make sure our
kids have a
watershed to
steward.
