Kiosk and Resoration Work completed at Indian Springs.

RNRTU successfully collaborated with other groups including Lemhi Regional Land Trust, Upper Salmon Basin Watershed Project and the Bureau of Land Management. Together we created a series of 3 kiosk sites with educational themes throughout the Lemhi Valley. RNRTU’s project site  for  the interpretive/educational kiosk was adjacent to a riparian enhancement project that was completed by local TU staff during the same time frame. The site for this project is adjacent to a major public thoroughfare - Highway 28, in south/central Idaho. 

As a result of the stream restoration project, a small spring fed stream, Indian Springs, and an adjacent stream, Sawmill Creek, will now flow year round and will be permanently re-connected to the mainstream, Lemhi River. Adding flow to these small streams as well as to the mainstream, Lemhi River, will improve summer and winter temperatures and conditions for anadromous and resident fish. The restoration of these smaller stream improvements will provide important niche habitat for juvenile salmon and steelhead survival. This habitat enhancement is visible from the kiosk site and incorporated into the theme of the educational information on the panels.
