Riparian Restoration

A stream’s health is highly dependent on the condition of the riparian area surrounding it.  BBCTU has restored over 120 miles of riparian habitat along the banks of 64 streams in the Blackfoot watershed. Volunteers are an important part of this work and we involve students as much as possible

Here’s one of our first efforts, along Chamberlain Creek in the Garnet range.  Done 20 years ago, the drainage today is filled with mature, lush plant life and has become prime cutthroat spawning waters.
