Click and scroll on the panorama above to see a 360 degree view!

A new partnership formed in 2005 to begin native riparian habitat restoration along Fourmile Creek, a tributary to the Little Salmon River. The ranchers/landowners built fences to protect the riparian areas from livestock while volunteers worked with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game planting hundreds of trees and shrubs along the creek.

Volunteers from Borah and Meadows Valley High Schools worked alongside other community volunteers: a number of these volunteers have been helping with the restoration project in the Little Salmon River watershed for more than a decade.
