This area was trammeled after the construction of the Ice Harbor Dam, but since 1997 the heart of this remote wildlife area has been restored to native health. The Corps of Engineers has hosted revegetation plantings to restore the native steppe plants to improve the wildlife habitat (and therefore wildlife populations). The route through the area takes advantage of the restoration efforts, exploring the rich foliage and wildlife habitat of the area along the pretty stretch of the Snake River—a section of Lake Male and female Goldeneyes in the slack waters of the Snake River Sacajawea, the impoundment behind the Ice Harbor Dam.
