Little Popo Agie Watershed Improvement Project 

Shoshone National Forest completed a watershed improvement project near the town of Lander, WY on Washakie Ranger District. This project improved Little Popo Agie watershed by reducing siltation, allowing free flow of the stream, and returning stable groundwater tables to support riparian vegetation re-colonization! The Little Popo Agie is an important fishery in the region, being very popular with anglers and supporting Region 2 Sensitive Species (Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout & possible Boreal Toad & Northern Leopard Frog populations). More engineering projects.
