Hyndman Creek is a major tributary of the East Fork of the Big Wood River, and provides important riparian habitat for birds and fish, including the threatened Wood River sculpin. The conservation easement is comprised of open hillsides and flat creek bed, and is favored by deer, elk, and wolverine. Over the years, the landowners have also sighted black bears and mountain lions with regularity. Hyndman Creek and the surrounding wetlands are important to water conservation, flood control, and water quality, in addition to providing valuable habitat for wildlife.
