Bear Creek

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.
