Snake-Grande Ronde Rivers

The Grande Ronde River shown on the right flowing into the Snake River at the entrance to Hell's Canyon. WRC and the Trust for Public Land worked to conserve the 1,200-acre Lime Point property, a popular recreation site at the confluence of these two outstanding rivers. The project lies upstream from the settlement on the confluence on river right. Photo by Washington Department of Ecology.

The Lime Point property is home to habitat for critical winter ranges of bald eagle, bighorn sheep, elk and deer. These lands are now managed as a BLM Area of Critical Environmental Concern. Photo by David Drake.
