Snake River Headwaters


The Snake River Headwaters encompasses parts of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, the John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway, the National Elk Refuge, and the Bridger-Teton National Forest. The river lies at the heart of the Greater Yellowstone Area, often referred to as one of the last intact functioning temperate ecosystems on earth. Thus, the rivers included in the Snake River Headwaters Legacy Act of 2009 are among the most pristine in the nation. They have many outstandingly remarkable values and offer myriad recreational opportunities.
