Wetland Restoration

Over 25% of the wetlands in the Blackfoot Valley have been drained.  In many cases restoration is as simple as filling drainage ditches and letting natural run-off take its course.  The Blackfoot Restoration Partners have restored over 3,000 acres of wetlands in the valley to date.

Below are two examples of degraded wetlands restored to their former state by BBCTU working with its partners and the landowners.
