Mt. Harrison Interpretive Site

  

The Mount Harrison BSIA was established in 2003 by the USDA Forest Service for its unique alpine and subalpine habitats and rare species. The area provides protection for the remaining portion of Christ’s Indian paintbrush population not included in the Minidoka RNA. In addition, Mount Harrison has one of two Davis’ wavewing populations and two of the largest intact tall forb communities remaining in Idaho.
