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

During April of 2009 the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, the Adams Soil and Water Conservation District and the Idaho Soil Conservation Commission and volunteers from Boise State University, treasure valley high schools and other interested volunteers conducted a bioengineered streambank stabilization demonstration project using willow plantings and a willow weaving to protect over 300 feet of stream shore. The demonstration project is part of an overall effort to restore 8 miles of the Little Weiser River.

Volunteers are an incomparable resource when it comes to projects like this one. If you would like to be a part of a future restoration project please contact me:
