IT IS RAINING! We are getting more winter moisture than we have for many years, one storm following another. The southern Utah desert will be beautiful this spring! Hoping these rains give us a good snowpack and recharge the aquifers that sustain the Virgin River’s precious stream flow through the summer.
BEST WISHES TO YOU FOR THE NEW YEAR AHEAD. PLEASE BE KIND TO THE LAND AND EACH OTHER. STAY SAFE AND WELL. LEAVE NO TRACE. FIND YOUR JOY. LIVE! LAUGH!!

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. During 2022, two additional but significant acres of meadowland across the lane from the historic chapel were protected, bringing the total to over 100 acres! VRLPA sends the most sincere THANK YOU to the dedicated private landowners who cherish the history and pastoral tranquility of Pine Valley…and who are protecting these qualities for all of us to enjoy, 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.
