Volunteers Rebuild Indian Creek Boat Ramp on the Salmon River

With all the news about fires and smoke from the Salmon River with the Mustang Complex, we missed this story this summer.

The Selway-Bitterroot Franch Church Foundation provided the details of a very successful project.

The Foundation worked with the Salmon-Challis National Forest to reconstruct the Indian Creek boat ramp. The old ramp, built in 2006, had a bad case of wood rot. It was getting more difficult to launch down that long hillside (see photo) that stretches about 75 feet.

A 10-person crew took apart the old ramp and put in a new one, all done by hand without power tools. The volunteers came from Idaho, Montana and Colorado and the work was done in early September. Funding was from the Southwest Idaho RAC, which funds projects that help the forest and other adjacent property.

This one only one of the many projects the Foundation accomplished this season in the wilderness areas. Bravo!
