Stan has been an attorney for the Montana Water Project since May 2001.  In his position, he works on a variety of instream flow initiatives. Previously, Stan was the Resource Director for Montana Trout Unlimited, where he was responsible for working with various state agencies on resource issues related to cold-water fisheries, with a heavy emphasis on instream flows. From 1976 to 1979 he worked for the Montana Department of Health and Environmental Sciences on subdivision and water quality issues.  From 1981 through 1986 he worked for the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks, where he was Chief Counsel. As part of his duties at MDFWP, he was actively involved in the statewide water rights adjudication and stream access litigation. In addition to his conservation work, Stan was a principal in Greycliff Publishing with his wife Glenda and the late Gary LaFontaine. When he's not talking water with ranchers or anyone else who will listen, he spends as much time as he can on water, in one form or other--he is an accomplished whitewater canoeist, enthusiastic fly fisherman, and an avid skier.
