Gallatin River Task Force

Algae sampled and bagged.

Seeing green

Back in August the Lookout reported on the curious amount of algae being spotted along the Gallatin River—from south of the Taylor Fork area and throughout the Gallatin Canyon.

Local photographer Pat Clayton—whose arresting photos of water, fish and landscapes can be enjoyed and purchased at fisheyeguyphotography.com—donated this image to a petition drive effort to protect the Gallatin River. Read more on page 5.

What matters more than water?

Rushing past House Rock on the Gallatin River. Landing a 12-inch rainbow trout in the West Fork of the Gallatin. Skiing early season groomers at Big Sky Resort. Downing a cold glass of untreated tap water. These are all experiences valued by residents of Big Sky—and they all hinge upon a healthy water system.
