The Upper Clark Fork Working Group (UCFWG) has released its first official newsletter! This newsletter, a Spring 2021 issue, covers a variety of topics including recent meeting presentations, spotlight on group members, and upcoming events and workshops. The UCFWG also launched a Communications Poll in the Spring 2021 newsletter to inform the group on who is involved and help guide future workshop and discussion content development. The newsletter will be released on a quarterly basis and help members learn more about the group, stay up to date on its meetings and activities, and engage with relevant opportunities.
