Partnerships, trust, and effective collaboration have been fundamental to our success as an organization. Our vision is to be a model for watershed conservation that puts science into practice, celebrates a diverse culture of stewardship, and implements locally-based solutions that support our economy, community, and values.
We are proud to work with diverse community and agency partners to find win-win solutions that maintain the viability and health of our working lands, open spaces, and stream corridors, while improving surface and ground resources, reducing sediment input, and ensuring well-functioning fish and wildlife habitat. Water plays an essential role in the landscapes, lives, and livelihood of our community, and by working together we can protect this precious resource.
Together, with 3 local organizations, we are creating a 2.5 mile public pathway along the Teton Creek corridor while improving stream function, fish and wildlife habitat, protecting Teton Valley’s agricultural heritage, and providing an asset that benefits the entire community.
In partnership with local agricultural organizations and producers, we are developing locally based solutions for maintaining the viability and health of our working lands, open spaces, and stream corridors, while improving surface and ground water resources for the benefit of farms and fish.
Just four miles west of downtown Driggs is the most popular access point to the Teton River; Bates Bridge. A group of non-profit partners collectively purchased land that will become an improved boat ramp, increased parking, a restroom facility, informational kiosks, and spaces for day-use/ picnicking.
FTR’s WaterWise Community Education Series are free educational events and incentive programs that are open to the public on current water issues. Ongoing WaterWise events include well water testing for nitrates, household hazardous waste disposal and education, and a septic incentive program.
