Why it is a Conservation Priority
The Croy Creek Wetland Boardwalk is an extraordinary Wood River Valley feature. Since the protection of the wetland was the Land Trust’s primary goal, the boardwalk now provides an opportunity for the public to visit and appreciate this sensitive area, but also protect it from human incursion and damage. And because wetlands are not usually accessible, who could resist the lure of walking above them, watching for wildlife and discovering wetland plants. 

What To Do And See:
In the early morning you might see a moose walking along the river, herons wading in the water, red-winged blackbirds on their grass perches, and throughout the spring and summer you’ll hear an orchestra of bird calls in the willows and trees.

Visiting Croy Creek Wetland Boardwalk:
Located on the west side of the Big Wood River, in the Hailey Greenway at Lions Park in Hailey. From downtown Hailey, turn west onto Bullion St; continue over Bullion Bridge, turn south (left) into Lions Park, and continue beyond the softball fields. Look for the directional signage.

Restoration & Education Goals:
The Hailey Greenway Restoration site is also adjacent to our 85-acre Draper Wood River Preserve. We worked with the City of Hailey to connect the restored wetland area to the Draper Wood River Preserve with a trail, boardwalk, and overlook system along the west side of the Big Wood River near the area’s beaver ponds. Interpretive signage along the trail provides information about the ways wetland areas benefit water quality and wildlife.
