Project Overview

The Jesse Creek project has restored stream flow into the natural, historic Jesse Creek channel permanently restoring water to the dewatered lower section and restoring over 40 acres of wetland. In addition, over 800 native willows were planted along the restored reach. This expands habitat for fish and wildlife and reconnects high quality stream habitat to the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River.
