Teaming up

  Because more than 20 state, tribal and federal agencies share control of the 2 million-acre Henry's Fork Basin in eastern Idaho and western Wyoming, planning has been fragmented. There have been jurisdictional battles between the two states and not much concerted environmental protection. To end the divisiveness, two former adversaries - the Henry's Fork Foundation and the Fremont-Madison Irrigation District - joined forces last September in an effort to restore the watershed, which contains 3,000 miles of swells and streams and some 40,000 people. The grass-roots group says its aim is to be a non-adversarial forum that looks for consensus. For more information about Henry's Fork Watershed Council, contact Henry's Fork Foundation, Janice Brown, executive director, P.O. Box 61, Island Park, ID 83429, or Fremont-Madison Irrigation District, Dale Swenson, manager, P.O. Box 15, St. Anthony, ID 83445.
