INTRODUCTION around (1) possible forage competition, and Willow Creek is situated in a semi- roadless aspen park ecosystem in north- central Utah.

Domestic sheep have been grazing the Willow Creek drainage for about years. Elk were reintroduced to the area. Elk summer habitat appears to be in stable condition.
