Bear River Land Conservancy

The Bear River Land Conservancy helps conserve private lands that provide public benefits in northern Utah. These lands provide habitat, ground for farming and ranching, vistas and open space, and recreational opportunities. Historical preservation becomes a focus when it compliments another benefit.

As with many of the 1,500 land trusts in the United States, BRLC emerged from the need to protect and enhance a particular place, the Morton Section of the Bear River Bottoms. In 2009 Bridgerland Audubon Society accepted a conservation easement on 455 acres of the BRB, a riparian floodplain along the Bear River, from PacifiCorp Energy in 2009. BRLC accepted assignment of this important conservation easement in 2011 and will steward it in perpetuity.

The directors of the BRLC come from diverse backgrounds—agriculture, ecology, environmentalism, hunting and fishing, land development and planning, law, and local government—but they have one thing in common: a belief that future generations will greatly value lands we set aside today for food, habitat, community identity, and outdoor recreation.
