Open spaces within this Valley are not just a backdrop—they are central to our daily lives. The Land Trust works diligently to protect and sustain the treasured landscapes and life-giving waters of the Wood River Valley and inspire love for this special place for generations to come.

Since 1994, the Wood River Land Trust has worked to protect over 20,000 acres and 14 open preserves, providing wild spaces and happy places for our entire community. Our most recent partnership, the preservation of Quigley Canyon, provides and enhances additional recreational opportunities for hiking, biking and skiing; and precious land and water for elk, deer, beavers and more.

The surrounding landscapes provide endless wonder and inspiration. We want to create more areas like Quigley Canyon, the Hailey Greenway, and Box Car Bend so people can connect with nature—and each other. Together we can secure and nurture critical land, water, and wildlife habitat to ensure the extraordinary character of the valley is protected forever.
