Sun Peak Preserve Project Updates

The proposed Sun Peak Preserve project is a transformative river restoration project. The section of the Big Wood River between the BLM’s Lake Creek Trailhead and the BLM’s Sun Peak Day-use area is one of the most unstable reaches of the whole river. If we do nothing, the river will continue to degrade, harming habitat for fish and other wildlife, exacerbating flooding downstream, and filling in the Hulen Meadows Pond. But together, we can reconnect the river to its floodplain, repair old damage, and restore the pond in a way that can bring the wonder of nature to all members of our community – regardless of physical ability or walk of life.
