Fisher Bottoms On The Snake River In Idaho

In February 2012, the Fund helped the Bureau of Land Management purchase the 431-acre Fisher Bottoms property along the South Fork of the Snake River in Idaho. The property had been home to the author Vardis Fisher, author of the 1965 book, “Mountain Man,” which became the movie Jeremiah Johnson starring Robert Redford. The purchase was made possible thanks to the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). Because of LWCF, BLM and TCF, the public can now visit this historic property when floating along the river.
