“Restore and conserve the cold water fishery of the Blackfoot River and its tributaries.”
Since the early 1990’s, BBCTU has led the effort to restore the Blackfoot River watershed and its fishery in partnership with local, state, and federal agencies, other non-profits, private foundations and private landowners. Our restoration program is a voluntary, non-regulatory program focused on projects that are “win-win” for both the resource and private landowners.
Since 1990, BBCTU and our restoration partners have worked with over 200 landowners on 700 projects ranging from stream restoration, grazing management, riparian revegetation, fish screens, fish barrier removal and water conservation projects.
One sign of progress — native trout numbers have increased 800% in the middle Blackfoot River compared to pre-restoration levels.
