Why be involved? Take a look at this quote from a participant from the Thunder Basin area after their watershed study was complete and a project was built:

“The WWDC watershed projects have made a phenomenal change in the Thunder Basin area. Specifically, the pipeline taking water up both sides of Antelope Creek has really made a difference. The change hasn’t been along the lines of more cattle production, it has been to the ecosystem. The federal government sets up rules on the number of animal equivalent units grazing the area but what has happened is that by adding the water projects, the health of the ecosystem has improved. There are riparian areas that have flourished and grasslands as well.” Dave Pellatz, Thunder Basin Grazing Association.
