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.
