The Teton Regional Land Trust and local partners propose to restore portions of Fox Creek and associated wetlands on private lands to improve wetlands, riparian areas and stream channels in order to reduce sedimentation and improve cover for spawning Yellowstone cutthroat trout. Fox Creek is one of the three remaining Yellowstone cutthroat trout spawning tributaries in the Upper Teton River. Newly contoured ponds and wetlands along Fox Creek will be planted with woody and herbaceous vegetation for improving water quality and riparian habitat. In the past, the Yellowstone cutthroat trout have declined in population due to poor quality habitat and competition from non-native trout species. This project will help restore critical habitat for re-establishing and strengthening their populations.
