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. It has become 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. Help us continue building on impactful work with the farming and ranching community in the Teton Watershed.
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. Learn about this project to improve the amenities/facilities at this site.
