More information: Background

You are invited to a presentation and discussion about stream access in Montana and what it means for irrigators and private landowners. Here's why you should attend: When the Montana Supreme Court applied the stream access law to a private irrigation ditch of the Bitterroot River, it eroded the property rights of landowners and irrigators state-wide.

Come learn what the Mitchell case means to you and what you can do to protect your rights.
