in the Blackfoot watershed
while you drive
To coordinate efforts to conserve and enhance the natural resources and rural way of life in the Blackfoot watershed for present and future generations.
At our core, we are a process.
We bring people together, facilitate respectful conversations and the exchange of information, keep the focus on shared values, and build trust.
We coordinate responses to community needs and find homegrown solutions that stand the test of time. The hard work takes place in our community-led committees.
Honoring George's legacy
The Blackfoot Challenge lost a great friend, ardent conservationist, and longtime board member with the recent passing of George Hirschenberger.
An active participant in the Challenge for more than 30 years, George brought humor, humility, passion, and an exceptional ability to collaborate with a broad spectrum of people to the Blackfoot watershed’s conservation efforts. His legacy will serve as an enduring example of how to be successful in community-based conservation and stewardship.
Join our team
We are seeking a Water Steward to coordinate and deliver a variety of partnerships and projects aimed at conserving and enhancing water resources in the Blackfoot River watershed.
The Water Steward will develop an overall vision for how the water program can most effectively respond to climate change, including identifying watershed science needs, developing program ideas that can ensure the sustainability of irrigated agriculture, and designing projects that support long-term ecological drought resilience.
