The Corridor

The Yellowstone to Uintas Corridor is a 350-mile long wildlife corridor connecting the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem with the Uinta Mountains in Utah. This map shows the approximate corridor boundaries and the general pathways various wildlife species take to move throughout the corridor. For example, many ungulate species including deer and antelope move south from the Teton National Forest through the valleys of Western Wyoming, crossing BLM and private land before reaching the Uintas. Many large carnivore species including mountain lion, coyotes and the occassional wolverine often follow their prey through the higher elevations of the Bear River Range. The Corridor encompasses a combination of federal, state and private land which means that our work involves collaborating with a diverse group of land management stakeholders from Forest Service and BLM staff to state wildlife agencies to private landowners and local communities.
