The Upper Clark Fork Working Group will meet on Thursday, June 10 at 12 p.m. Dr. Maury Valett, a UM Professor of Systems Ecology, will lead the effort to address nutrient enrichment and algal blooms along the river’s course from Warm Springs to Turah. His presentation will provide a historic and contemporary assessment of algal blooms in the Upper Clark Fork River (UCFR). 

Dr. Valett is an aquatic ecosystem ecologist who has focused on nutrient influences and responses in running water ecosystems. For the past 10 years, his work has focused on collaborative efforts with the State and other organizations to understand nutrient influences on the UCFR including the potential influences of riverine algal blooms.
