The Three Mile Creek conservation easement is a dryland farming operation northwest of Fairfield and near the base of Soldier Mountain. Historically, hay, barley, and wheat have been grown, but its magic is found mostly along Three Mile Creek and in the slough that meanders near the western boundary. A plant survey done by Wood River Land Trust identified over 300 kinds of plants on the property. Numerous types of birds, antelope, ducks, deer and fox have been observed on the property, and a public access trail that runs along Three Mile Creek provides visitors with the opportunity to emerge themselves in research, hiking, birding, cross-country skiing, horseback riding, and photography.
