The National Forest Foundation (NFF) has been working with the Idaho Panhandle National Forest (Forest Service) and local groups since 2012 in a partnership to improve conditions in Lightning Creek, near Clark Fork.
The Beaver Creek fire spurred a great deal of immediate community response, partnerships, and joint action. In the year following the fire, a broad coalition of conservation and recreation organizations, private landowners, business and economic interests, and government agencies combined forces to protect and restore lands and natural assets in the Wood River Valley. The Coalition is now working to apply the region’s best thinking across sectors to develop creative and effective solutions that will generate community and ecological resilience.
