Clark Fork Delta

The Clark Fork Delta is a fabulous wetland feeding into Lake Pend Oreille. It’s a spiritual place for the Kalispel Tribe, whose creation story says the tribe’s ancestors came out of the Clark Fork River in a giant canoe. And it should be a rich biodiversity area, drawing waterfowl, owls, bats and other critters to feed on mosquitos and water insects. But the delta is melting away from dam operations upstream and downstream. Federal partners, working with Idaho Fish and Game, are spending $6 million to rebuild the delta.
