Description

The Bear River is as diverse in its resource issues as it is in its landforms. Starting high in the Uinta Mountains, ending in the Great Salt Lake and crossing three state lines several different times, resource issues across the watershed allow for broad collaborative partnerships. In the Idaho portion of Bear River numerous stakeholders, including federal, state and private entities have joined together to address water quality, wetland, fishery and land management concerns. Current and ongoing projects in the Idaho portion of the Bear River are intent on restoration of Bonneville Cutthroat Trout, improving wetland habitats and water quality and improving riparian and stream habitats and potentially protecting important habitats for future generations. These projects run the gamut from research projects on the fluvial nature of Bonneville Cutthroats to simple application of best management practices to improve riparian habitat and water quality. Various aspects of these projects with an emphasis on stakeholder partnerships and collaboration will be discussed.
