WHAT WE’RE UP TO
TETON CREEK CORRIDOR PROJECT
FARMS & FISH
BATES PUBLIC ACCESS PARK
This project builds on over a decade of stream restoration and conservation work in the beautiful Teton Creek corridor, just outside of Driggs. With your help, it will be an ecological and recreational asset to our community, for all to steward and enjoy.
FTR and agricultural producers are spearheading watershed protection efforts like the No-Till Initiative, the Teton Water User’s Association, and Farms & Fish Campaign, to keep “working lands working” in a way that supports livelihoods and a healthy river.
FTR, Teton County, and a group of non-profit partners purchased 80 acres of private property at the popular Bates Bridge river access in 2016, securing it for future public enjoyment. Your support will help improve the amenities/facilities at this site.
ABOUT FRIENDS OF THE TETON RIVER
Friends of the Teton River works with our community and partners to develop place-based solutions that maintain the viability and health of our working lands and stream corridors, while protecting our precious water resources, improving water quality and stream flows, restoring well-functioning fish and wildlife habitat, and engaging citizens of all ages to connect with the Teton River.
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
In addition to providing locally relevant information on water-related topics, FTR also provides resources and support for homeowners, landowners, water rights holders, teachers, farmers, and community members. We have Resources for You that help connect you with experts and services, educational supplies, incentive programs, and more.
At this casual and informational gathering, meet local ranching families, taste locally-raised livestock and lean about how Friends of the Teton River and Teton Valley stockmen and women are working together to use conservation and best management practices in their ranch operations.
