  • 19-094 Corps and area law enforcement agencies team up to encourage safe play at Illia Dunes and Granite Point

    With autumn’s chill beginning to creep into nighttime temperatures, many people flock to riverside recreation areas to bank-up on some outdoor fun in the sun. Illia Dunes, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers habitat management area located on the Snake River about 3 miles downstream and Granite Point located about 6 miles upstream of Lower Granite Lock and Dam, have proven a popular end-of-summer gathering place. In recent past years, thousands of visitors – mostly college-aged – have converged on these areas during Labor Day weekend.
