Native Species Restoration
We fund and support projects to restore and conserve populations of native fish species in the Big Hole River and its tributaries. We focus mainly on westslope cutthroat trout and fluvial Arctic grayling, and we support projects including fish passage projects, culvert removal, barriers to prevent non-native colonization.
Water quality and macroinvertebrate data are not regularly collected within the Big Hole Watershed. We pursue funding opportunities and conduct monitoring efforts to help fill data gaps. These data are available to agencies, and universities to better manage the Watershed and inform conservation efforts.
