Porcupine Creek Preserve

Porcupine Creek Preserve is part of a Pioneer Mountains migration corridor used by elk and mule deer to travel between higher-elevation Forest Service lands and lower-elevation Bureau of Land Management and private properties. The Preserve’s habitat also supports beavers, black bears, migratory songbirds, moose, Wood River sculpin and several species of grouse.

Protection of the property now provides connectivity with neighboring BLM lands, which have been designated as an Area of Critical Environmental Concern to protect sensitive wildlife resources.
