View this email in your browser
Montana Aquatic Resources Services (MARS) is a non-profit organization formed in 2011 to ensure that wetlands and streams remain healthy and continue to provide high quality water to Montana farms, cities, industry and wildlife. MARS works closely with landowners, watershed groups, conservation districts, agencies, contractors and local leaders to identify and implement high quality projects that will deliver clean water for wildlife, agriculture, and communities into the future. Due to a growing need for project implementation around the state, MARS looks to existing and new partners for input regarding locally supported project opportunities.
