Parnership Formed To Manage Snake River

river

A partnership of government agencies and the nonprofit Snake River Fund has implemented a plan for managing riverside parcels from the southern boundary of Grand Teton National Park to the Snake River Canyon. The interim operating plan provides for services including law enforcement patrols, restroom cleaning, trash pickup, road and boat ramp grading, signs and education. Bureau of Land Management Spokesman Martin Hudson says the efforts will be focused primarily between Wilson and South Park on BLM parcels which comprise nearly 1,000 acres.  These same parcels are in the process of being transferred from the BLM to Teton County, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and Bridger-Teton National Forest to ensure continued public ownership and access. All of the agencies are working in collaboration with the Snake River Fund to provide services until the transfer is completed – possibly several years from now.
