Mule Train Mitigation Bank, named for mules trained onsite and relocated to support Grand Canyon tourism, embodies a commitment to preserving nature while fostering sustainable development. Over the past eight months, five construction crews from around RES crafted over 17,000 linear feet of stream channels, blending innovation with environmental stewardship.

The Mule Train Mitigation Bank project benefits the Gallatin ecosystem and surrounding communities. Through ecological restoration efforts, the project enhances biodiversity, promoting the health and resilience of the local ecosystem. Furthermore, by incorporating natural floodplain areas and improving water flow dynamics, the mitigation bank plays a crucial role in reducing flood risks and safeguarding nearby communities from potential disasters.
