Located along the Little Wood River east of Shoshone, the Neher Preserve protects important fish and wildlife habitat.  The Preserve was generously gifted to Wood River Land Trust in 2005 by Juanita Neher.  This continued a history of conservation initiated by her and her husband, Dr. Royal Neher, which began in 1993 when they entered into a cooperative management agreement on the property with Idaho Fish and Game, the Bureau of Land Management, and the Shoshone School District.
