LOOK FOR US AT UPCOMING EVENTS:

SORRY, THERE ARE NO EVENTS PLANNED AT THIS TIME…

Expanding protection in Pine Valley Meadows

Virgin River Land is working with landowners in Pine Valley to acquire additional conservation easements and expand the protection of the meadows. As 2021 came to a close, an additional 20 acres of meadowland was protected, bringing the total to 100 acres! This spring we worked with a family to protect a small but significant parcel across the land from the historic chapel. VRLPA sends the most sincere THANK YOU to the private landowners who cherish the history and pastoral tranquility of Pine Valley…and who are protecting these qualities for all of us to enjoy and leaving a legacy for future generations. We also thank the STATE of UTAH Quality Growth Commission for their funding support to protect unreplaceable special places in southern Utah!

Sheep Bridge successfully purchased!!

Virgin River Land sends the most sincere THANK YOU to The Nature Conservancy of Utah for successfully completing the purchase of the Sheep Bridge Crossing property in May of 2020. The broad support for this important project made the difference, in particular the numerous private donations ranging from a few dollars to many thousands, attracting the final funding needed to finish the acquisition.

THANK YOU if you you are one of those private donors because you helped make this happen!!

We also shout out another sincere THANK YOU to the landowners who so generously made this purchase possible.
