Do you know that Clearwater Resource Council created six 30-second public service announcements to alert Montana's citizens about Aquatic Invasive Mussels? They are ready for you to view, copy a URL link, or get the ‘embed code’ to use from the CRC YouTube Channel. Please use them free of charge, on your websites, Facebook or other social media platforms. DNRC will release them in a paid media blitz in the spring of 2019, but we want to get them to a wide audience now. Choose one or more that are appropriate for your organization, agency or company. The scripts are viewable on the adjacent flyer and the spots are individually targeting boaters, anglers, ranchers, energy consumers and the general public.
The PSA Content Summary flyer includes the basic scripts used for each of the announcements.
