East Fork of the Bitterroot on Highway 93 near Sula, MT
Reduce sediment pollution and hazardous high water temperatures by revegetating a 5,000 foot section of riverside.
The East Fork of the Bitterroot River has endured a long struggle with thermal pollution (high temperatures) and excess sedimentation that impairs a 5,000 foot river reach. Healthy riparian habitat can mitigate these challenges.
With the help of volunteers and Ravalli County Resource Advisory Council, we completed five separate projects to revegetate 5,000 feet of riverbank.
Across six years the entire bank side was revegetated with native plants such as Chokecherry, Redosier Dogwood, Black Cottonwood, Serviceberry, and Quaking Aspen.
