Idaho Native Plant Society presents program on Yankee Fork Improvement Project

March 5, 2014 

Steve Clayton, senior project manager at CH2M Hill and a member of the local, Pahove Chapter of the Idaho Native Plant Society, will present this month's talk on March 11, "Restore it and they will come?: Yankee Fork Habitat Improvement Project."

After years of gold dredging in the Yankee Fork — a tributary of the Salmon River near Stanley — several groups, including private, tribal, state and federal organizations worked to improve the habitat at this former mining area.

Improvements included a side channel constructed in 2012 and the planting of dogwoods donated by the Pahove Chapter.

Clayton's talk, which is free, begins at 7 p.m., March 11 at the MK Nature Center, 600 S. Walnut in Boise.
