This project arose from comments and feedback from citizens, educators and resource managers concerning the need for better, easier access to Bear River information. During the life of the project, we ask for your comments, feedback and ideas on how we can best serve the citizens of Bear River.

The site is now funded by the Bear River Water Quality Committee of the Bear River Commission.
