Wind River Basin
7 basins restored (19.9 acres) and 4 miles of riparian fencing
Within this drainage lies the 2 million
acre Wind River Indian Reservation, bordered by the Wind River Mountain Range to the south
and the Owl Creek Mountain Range to the north.
Wyoming Partners has worked with the
Shoshone and Arapaho Tribes on numerous projects including wetland restoration and
creation, riparian livestock fencing, grassland restoration and management, and stream
restoration. The Reservation contains localized populations of Yellowstone cutthroat
trout, a Species of Concern. Several Partners projects in the spring of 2001 involved
installing fish passage structures to eliminate migration barriers.
