Dedicated Hunters and Other Volunteers Plant Willows on Threemile Creek

The headwaters of Threemile Creek were burned at a high severity during the Brianhead Fire. The hope is that the new plantings will increase the bank stability of unburned stream reaches, helping to preserve fish habitat during any future high runoff events from the fire. Prior to post-fire flooding Threemile Creek and its tributaries contained conservation populations of Bonneville Cutthroat Trout and Southern Leatherside Chub. Maintaining aquatic habitat in Threemile Creek will speed the recovery of these populations. Learn more about Utah’s Dedicated Hunter Program here: https://wildlife.utah.gov/dedicated-hunters.html.
