Decades of data and observations point to a clear conclusion: the Clark Fork River basin is now experiencing a very real shift in climate. During the next 100 years, this shift is expected to accelerate, contributing to physical, ecological, social, and economic changes, many of which have already begun.
This report delivers a plain-language synthesis of the key findings from years of data-gathering in the watershed, blended with anecdotal observations by a broad spectrum of river basin citizens, from realtor to rancher, fishing guide to firefighter.

The report gives a snapshot of local residents can do to protect their hometown creeks, local economies, and celebrated way of life in the changing climate of the Clark Fork watershed.
