Teton Regional Land Trust and Teton Valley Trout Unlimited volunteers spent a total of 91 hours repairing restored streambanks eroded by last year’s incredible high water! Volunteers enjoyed beautiful weather while working on a river they all love. The project used old Christmas trees to reduce erosion and encourage sediment to deposit along the streambank. Thanks to all that braved the icy cold water of the Teton River.
The project improves riparian habitat to benefit spawning Yellowstone cutthroat trout, trumpeter swans, and a variety of waterbirds. Over a half mile of streambank has been restored by the landowners and project partners since 2007.
