The Greater Gallatin Watershed Council will host a series of public forums in communities across the Lower Gallatin focused on drought impacts and experiences. These forums, which will occur in Bozeman, Belgrade, Four Corners, and Manhattan, will include speakers sharing how drought affects specific sectors like agriculture, recreation, and municipalities in each community. The forums will also give participants the opportunity to share their own experiences preparing for and addressing drought and discuss how communities and sectors across the Lower Gallatin can become more resilient to drought. The forums will occur on the following dates, locations, and times:
- August 7, 2017 – Belgrade, Belgrade Community Library – 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.
- August 10, 2017 – Bozeman, MSU Extension in Gallatin County Offices – 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.
