Working for the River Field Tour

Updated: Jan 2, 2020

The 2019 Field Tour was a notable success, with about fifty participants representing 19

different nonprofit groups, mining companies, congressional offices, natural resources

agencies, the local grazing association, and Caribou County. The group visited five

river restoration sites ranging from the headwaters of Lanes Creek to the Blackfoot

River mainstem. Biologists with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game explained that

their monitoring effort had detected a more than two-fold increase in Yellowstone

cutthroat spawning in Sheep Creek following a restoration project on the stream.

Participants expressed support for UBC’s cooperative and practical approach to

enhancing the streams of the Upper Blackfoot Basin.
