The Upper Green River is truly a very special and magical place, which is being considered for designation for permanent protection. The Upper Green River is cherished by Wyoming residents and visitors from across the nation for its magnificent scenery, abundance and diversity of wildlife, and world-class recreational opportunities including fishing, hunting, paddling, hiking, and camping.

It also flows through the largest grazing allotment in U.S. Forest Service system, providing summer range for 15,000 cattle and 7,000 sheep. Owing largely to its 174,000 acres of high elevation wetlands, the Upper Green River corridor is home to a rich array of wildlife including moose, elk, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, grizzly bears, sage grouse, sandhill cranes; brown, rainbow and cutthroat trout; and the Kendall Warm Springs dace, an endangered fish that lives nowhere else on earth.

Two of the longest wildlife migration corridors in the lower 48 states overlap with the Upper Green River. These corridors are utilized by pronghorn antelope and mule deer as they migrate from the mountains of western Wyoming to the Red Desert.
