Free-flowing rivers have long inspired both visitors to and residents of western Montana. Join us as we welcome Lisa Ronald, Western Montana Associate Conservation Director with American Rivers.

Through stories that weave together people, events, and perspectives, Lisa will share information about Wild and Scenic Rivers, from their roots in the dam-building era to applications today around Missoula. Formed in 1973, American Rivers is a national organization that protects wild rivers, restores damaged rivers, and ensures clean water for communities across the country.

Lisa has lived in Missoula since 1996 and became a whitewater kayaker seven years ago. In addition to her local river protection work with American Rivers, she also leads the Wild and Scenic Rivers Coalition, an alliance of more than 60 river groups nationwide. For nearly 20 years, she worked in environmental education at the University of Montana’s Wilderness Institute where she continues to lead student river trips.


What’s the refund policy?

The course fee is refundable if a cancellation is made up to 7 days before the event. No refunds will be issued for cancellations made after this deadline. In light of changes to programming due to novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Montana Natural History Center will make exceptions to its normal refund policy. These exceptions are as follows:

  • Any programs cancelled by the Montana Natural History Center are eligible for a full refund.
  • In the event a program fee can be rolled over to a following cycle or year, that offer will be made available to the paying program participant, and a spot will be reserved for the participant.
  • If a program is cancelled by a participant due to reasonable health and safety concerns from exposure risk to novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Montana Natural History Center will issue a full refund.
  • If any participant experiences major illness, injury, or loss of a family member prior to the start of a registered program the participant is eligible for a full refund.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
