This report assesses the current land cover of the Elk River valley bottom from Elkford to Elko. The valley bottom is a major ecosystem that provides habitat that is very important for fish, wildlife and watershed function. Land cover information identifies the current habitat available, including the extent of natural and disturbed areas. The information from this study is intended to provide valuable baseline data describing current conditions and to be a tool for decision makers in land use planning (e.g. to help maintain or improve conditions into the future).
