LOOK FOR US AT UPCOMING EVENTS:

10th ANNUAL HURRICANE MOUNTAIN BIKE FESTIVAL, March 27-29, 2020, Hurricane, Utah.

This annual event is all about riding the area’s phenomenal trails and having fun. We get great support every year from festival goers to help preserve the lower portion of the JEM Trail as it follows the river canyon edge. This section of trail and the lower trailhead are located on SHEEP BRIDGE CROSSING, a 419- acre tract of private property which we are working with The Nature Conservancy to purchase. The landowners are excited to be working with us and strongly support the project’s joint goals of sensitive habitat protection and permanent access for the popular biking trail.

Our Mission:

Working with communities and landowners to preserve southwestern Utah’s heritage of scenic beauty, open lands, and quality of life.

Our current project…

Give the GIFT OF LAND! Help us PERMANENTLY PROTECT the 419-acre Sheep Bridge Crossing property and the LOWER J.E.M. Trail and TRAILHEAD for WILDLIFE, SCENIC VISTAS, RIVER CORRIDOR, AND RECREATION ACCESS.

The Importance of Volunteers to our Mission:

Over the past 25 years, VRLPA has protected nearly 5,000 acres through purchase of land and conservation easements. As we head into the next 20 years, dedicated volunteers will continue to represent the backbone of our efforts. Whether serving as a Board Member or helping with community outreach, fundraising, or easement stewardship activities, there are numerous ways to get involved.
