Management Goal
Management Goal

Through their management of the WMA and WPA, FWP and USFWS will contribute to native fish recovery in Nevada Creek and the Blackfoot River. The agencies strive to maintain and enhance natural oxbow wetlands, riparian plant communities, upland nesting cover and associated wildlife communities on the WMA, the WPA and cooperating adjacent ownerships. Public access is provided on both properties for nature appreciation and education, with hunting as the featured recreational opportunity in autumn on Aunt Molly WMA only. As landowners in the local community, FWP and USFWS will work to be good neighbors.
