Welcome to the Riparian Community of Duck Creek
People are also important members of this community. Ranchers harvest meadow grasses for winter livestock hay. Anglers test their skills on the wily brown trout, while you enjoy the sights and sounds of the wildlife.
The foundation of the Duck Creek community is water and soil. Willow bushes and sedges growing along the creek banks, have long roots which hold the soils in place against the force of flood water. Duck Creek is a role model for clean water, diverse wildlife and lush plant growth.
This community is made possible because of the good stewardship of ranchers, land managers, wildlife managers, anglers and groups like Trout Unlimited. While visiting Wyoming tread lightly and view wildlife from a distance -- be a good steward and responsible member of our wild land communities!
