Henry's Fork Foundation Community Campus

801 Main Street in Ashton, Idaho

We are transforming Ashton, Idaho’s long-shuttered hospital into a new center for watershed education and science.

The Henry’s Fork of the Snake River, with all its magnificent scenery and wildlife, is made more remarkable by the community of people who take pride in conserving the river’s wild trout and countless natural wonders.  Sweat and courage built, and today sustain, one of the most productive irrigated agricultural systems in the United States and the small towns that comprise its backbone.  In short, the Henry’s Fork is a wellspring of benefits for everyone connected with Eastern Idaho. The river’s health will be vital to the region’s future prosperity. The Henry’s Fork Foundation Campus Interpretive Center will tell this story of the wandering fly fisher, the hardy Idaho pioneer, and solutions forged from understanding and working together.


Please help us expand and enhance:


Education: A 1,300 square foot Interpretive Center will include the following exhibits: Aquatic Web of Life, Library and History of Fly Fishing, Hydrology and Water, Agriculture, Hydropower, and Local History, and an interactive map of the Henry’s Fork Watershed

Collaborative Water Management: An 1,100 square-foot Conference Center

Wild Trout Habitat: A state-of-the-art water quality lab

Training Future Scientists: A dormitory to house interns and seasonal employees

Synergy and Innovation: 14 offices will enhance workflow and collaboration between staff, interns, and seasonal employees
