Warren Bridge Public Access Area Enhancements

Map of Wyoming showing BLM Field Office names and boundaries and the general location of the Warren Bridge project.
Need:  The Warren Bridge Foot Trail needs to be delineated and defined, along with planting cottenwood trees along the river corridor adjacent to the trail. The trail is located in Sublette County, Wyo, on the Green River.

Recovery Act Funding:  The project was awarded to several independent contractors for a total of $250,000. Interior West Consulting from Mancos, Colo conducted the Class III cultural inventory which provided archaeological data. The Wyoming Youth Conservation Corps constructed the trail. Conservation Seeding and Restoration, Inc., from Kimberly, Idaho will handle the cottonwood restoration. The work began in May and will continue through 2011.

Benefits:  This project will enhance the recreational experience, provide important cultural information and improve wildlife habitat which will improves the overall wilderness experience for public land users.
