Great Basin National Park will be conducting a stream treatment in Snake Creek on July 24th and 25th. The treatment will restore habitat for the native Bonneville cutthroat trout and fulfill the Park’s obligation to the 2006 Conservation Agreement and Conservation Strategy for Bonneville Cutthroat Trout in the State of Nevada. Bonneville Cutthroat Trout will be restored to the stream within a year after the treatment. The project is being conducted in cooperation with the Nevada Division of Wildlife.

To ensure the safety of Park visitors, Snake Creek Canyon will be closed from 9:00 am Monday July 23rd until 3:00 pm on Friday July 28th. Notices will be posted on all park entrances, campsites, and trails leading into Snake Creek Canyon.
