Bear Creek


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

When a rancher agreed to keep his cattle out of Bear Creek for part of the year, he knew it would help the creek, but he didn’t realize how much it would help his ranching business. Field Guide traces recovery of the creek, near Prineville, and asks why more ranchers haven’t done the same.

First Broadcast: 1999
