Honoring the Past and Looking to the Future
Fremont County Family Preserves 265 Acres
Honoring the past and looking to the future is important for many families. Recently a Fremont County family found the perfect way to make tribute to the hard work of generations who came before and create a lasting legacy for generations to come.
Lowell and Rayola Birch loved their land on the Henry’s Fork, they worked hard and made their farm productive. Along the way, they raised a family who loves the land as much as they did. Last week, their children protected their family farm forever. They created the Lowell E. and Rayola R. Birch Wildlife Conservation Easement, a voluntary protection agreement.
“This is a tribute to our parents,” one of the family members explained. “Our father loved the outdoors, really enjoyed being out. We also wanted this to be a place where the grandkids love to come because of the open space”
This important farm ground is also vital to many wildlife species that live along the river’s edge. The Teton Regional Land Trust and the Bureau of Land Management have worked with the landowners to create a lasting legacy for future generations, preserving wildlife habitat and keeping the farm in operation. With these 265 acres under conservation easement, the Teton Regional Land Trust celebrates over 30,000 acres protected in the region! Click below to read more about this project.
