Teton Regional Land Trust – Foster’s Slough Restoration

NFWF & Jackson Hole Partnership: $12,000 Local Match: $12,000

The Teton Regional Land Trust, located in Eastern Idaho, is a nonprofit organization working to conserve the agricultural and natural resources of the Upper Snake River Valley, for the benefit of today’s communities and as a legacy for future generations.

The Jackson Hole One Fly Foundation – National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Conservation Partnership Program is providing funding to provide an inventory of cutthroat trout habitat conditions and restore wetlands of Foster’s Slough, an ecologically important 2500 acre wetland-spring complex within Upper Teton River basin. The funds will be specifically used to restore the fishery in Elliot Creek, Fish Creek and Foster’s Slough. This will be accomplished through streambed and vegetation restoration, erosion control, grazing management, alternative livestock water development and riparian fencing.
