Peace Creek Trailhead Construction
sponsor: Boise National Forest,
USDA Forest Service, Emmett, Idaho
This award recognizes achievement in Environment and Wildlife Compatibility and is presented to the Peace Creek Trailhead Project in Emmett, Idaho. For this project, RTP funds were used to restore streambanks, build a trail bridge, improve dispersed camping sites and add trailhead facilities, including an information kiosk, parking area, restroom, and accessible loading ramp.
In addition, two water-polluting ford crossings were closed temporarily, then rehabilitated and re-opened. These fords were reshaped to mimic natural bank slopes. Crews also installed in-stream structures to protect the rehabilitated banks and improve fish habitat.
Here to accept the CRT Annual Achievement Award for Environment and Wildlife Compatibility are two representatives of the Boise National Forest: Dave Hale of the Resource Staff and Ann Niesen, Recreation Specialist on the Emmett Ranger District.
