This year we are focusing our Idaho Gives goals on our Data Website and Hydrologic Modeling: Precision Management for the Henry’s Fork.
The Henry’s Fork Foundation (HFF) is partnering with Fremont-Madison Irrigation District (FMID) to install modern canal control systems, develop a new generation of hydrologic models, and create a public, real-time hydrologic data website to improve water management in the Henry’s Fork Watershed. More precise water management will save water in Island Park Reservoir, which benefits winter flows, water quality, trout survival, and trout habitat. This multi-year effort aims to improve water-management precision and efficiency to meet irrigation demand while maintaining the watershed’s world-renowned trout fisheries and recovering water levels in the Teton Valley and Eastern Snake Plain aquifers.
HFF was honored to receive a three-year, $273,211 grant from the US Bureau of Reclamation WaterSMART Applied Science program to support our precision water management work. HFF is also proud to be providing technical support to FMID as it installs new irrigation infrastructure funded by a separate WaterSMART grant. HFF's federal grant requires a 1:1 match with non-federal dollars. We need your support now and over the next three years to make this pioneering, collaborative effort become a reality.
Every donation made to the Henry’s Fork Foundation will be matched dollar for dollar by generous members of the Foundation’s Board of Directors, up to $38,000!
PLUS for every donation of $50 or more you will receive fantastic gifts for each giving level. In addition, with a donation of $1,000 or more you will receive 1-5 raffle tickets, dependent on your donation amount, for a chance to win a Hyde Rocky Mountain Skiff. Drawing will be held at Henry's Fork Days XXXVI, August 22, 2020. You DO NOT need to be present to win.
For example, if you donate $2,500, you’ll receive a Winston Pure Rod OR an Abel Vaya Reel and 2 raffle tickets. For a $5,000 life membership donation, you’ll receive a Winston Pure Rod and Abel Vaya Reel, PLUS 5 Hyde Drift Boat raffle tickets.
