Teton Creek Corridor Project
Teton Creek Corridor Project is in motion!
We are very excited to share with you a project that has been in the works for quite a while. TVTAP along with Friends of Teton River, Teton Regional Land Trust, and Valley Advocates for Responsible Development have been working together on a project along the South Bench of the Teton Creek between State Line Road (NE of Driggs) and Cemetery Road (Due East of Driggs).
The mission of Teton Valley Trails and Pathways is a trails and pathways connected community. This project will help us continue this mission by connecting the communities of Driggs and Alta, Wyoming and provide more access to public lands. The project is not only a pathway, but an opportunity to:
- -improve streambed restoration
- -expand wildlife management
- -preserve agricultural heritage
- -assist interested landowners in improving existing developments
- -support community goals of enhancing healthy lifestyle and recreational amenities
What’s happened so far?
Working with cooperative private land owners, the four partners have negotiated easements to allow the construction of a 12-foot wide pathway near the creek corridor. On October 13, the four partners presented to the Teton County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) to request an easement on county property to connect the pathway to Cemetery Road, along with maintenance of the previously secured easements.
How can you help?
Please check back for updates on the project and future volunteer opportunities. Have a specific comment about TVTAP’s role in the Teton Creek Corridor Project? Email email@example.com.
