American Rivers has teamed up with the Missoula Writing Collaborative through a unique partnership to inspire creative placemaking through “ekphrastic poetry”—poetry inspired by nature photography. Using photographs of water—rushing torrents, placid pools, swirling eddies, and burbling currents—7th-grade students at Missoula, Montana’s C.S. Porter School authored poems about seven of the 57 Western Montana waterways America Rivers seeks to protect through the ongoing Lolo National ForestPlan Revision Nand future Bitterroot National Forest Plan Revision.
