BLUE WATER TASK FORCE

Big Sky students are selling flowers for Mother’s Day to raise funds for a new stormwater conservation garden the Blue Water Task Force plans to build in front of Ophir School.

The first annual Mother’s Day Flower Sale will run through April 1 and is being organized by BWTF, a local nonprofit that works to enhance and protect the health of the Gallatin River watershed.

The community demonstration stormwater garden will beautify the western side of the entrance road to the Big Sky School District and the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center, and also provide learning experiences for students and visitors about water quality and water conservation.

Flowers can be purchased through students at Ophir and Lone Peak High School or through the BWTF at bluewatertaskforce.org/support.php. Flowers will be ready for pick up on Thursday, May 9 at Wildwood Nursery. For moms outside the Big Sky area, there is a direct shipping option through Florists’ Transworld Delivery.
